The skies over Emricson Park will be filled with fireworks July 4, starting at dusk. Walk-ins can enter through South Street and Jackson Street entrances. Donations will be collected to help cover the cost of the fireworks. Concessionaires will offer snacks and beverages for sale. Woodstock is known for having one of the best Fourth of July fireworks displays in northern Illinois so be sure to come for the fun and festivities! Parking in the park will be available using the South Street entrance. There is a fee to park.
Since 1995, Woodstock's annual fireworks display - always held on the 4th of July - has been 100% funded by community donations. That's right! Individuals, businesses, and spectator donations fund this much beloved and highly anticipated show.
This year's goal is to raise $30,000 which will ensure the best show in McHenry County takes place at Emricson Park. Please join this community fundraising effort!
You can also donate by check, payable to "Woodstock Fireworks Fund" c/o Advia Credit Union, P.O. Box 1930, Woodstock, IL 60098. **PLEASE NOTE: The PO Box for Fireworks Fund is 1930, not 19030 as printed in some materials. Incorrect posting of mailed donations may result in returned mail.**
We invite you to be part of Woodstock's celebration with a donation in any amount. And we look forward to seeing you out for a fantastic evening of celebration this Independence Day!
