Pewaukee Lake Fireworks

July 9 @ 9:30 pm


The Pewaukee Lake fireworks will be at dusk, view them from Lakefront Park or the beach! Your family will enjoy these amazing memories!

Update: The fireworks for Pewaukee have been postponed until next Saturday, July 9, 2022. The bike decorating contest is still going on at Kiwanis Village Park at 10:00am on July 4, 2022. They will make the decision on the parade at noon. Decisions are being made on THIS FACEBOOK PAGE.


The factors under consideration:
• The fireworks company starts loading the fireworks into the tubes in the morning. Once they are loaded, they are committed to that day.
• Everyone is at the mercy of the weather. They are using barges; the threat of severe weather with wind is a major concern.
• They need to make a decision on fireworks by morning July 4th so they can begin loading tubes.
• Currently, the weather service is projecting 90% rain during the day, 90% at night with possible severe weather.
• If tomorrow morning it is decided to delay, they will establish the rain date. Tuesday looks slightly better, 40% day, 60% night.
• It is possible that the show might be moved to next weekend.
They appreciate the generosity of the community, both individuals and businesses that have contributed to this year’s fireworks!
4th of July Fireworks Committee

Downtown Pewaukee will again celebrate our Independence Day with fireworks!

Support our patriotic tradition by donating to this year’s fireworks display. WE NEED YOUR HELP! We have been notified that the cost of the display has increased by 30%. In order to have a display like last year we must raise our goal substantially! Our goal
this year is $40,000! The fireworks display on July 4th will start at 9:30 PM after a funfilled day of a community parade and the Pewaukee Lake Ski Club ski show! All held downtown at Lakefront Park. But this cannot happen without your support!
Please donate today to make this year’s celebration of the Red, White and Blue the best yet!
All Donations received prior to June 1, 2022 will be included on a thank you banner displayed at Lakefront Park! Below are suggested donation amounts, but every dollar helps! If you are interested in Title Sponsorship, please contact the Friends of the Parks of Pewaukee at friendsofpewaukeeparks@gmail.com.

  • Beverages being sold (beer, wine, soda, water, popcorn) from the Lakefront Park building from 3:00 pm – 9:15 pm (TBD if this is happening in 2022)
  • Fireworks will now be at 9:30 pm

Additional Firework viewer feedback on locations for watching the fireworks:

  • On the hill next to High St. Bonus: ability to avoid the big crowds and far enough away that the big booms aren’t that loud.

(Earlier in the day, check out the Parade at 3:00 pm and the Pewaukee Lake Water Ski Club show)
