One great thing about the Hamptons is that we spread out our fireworks displays over the summer. Of course, most are around July 4 (beginning this year on July 1 in North Sea), but there are others going all the way to Labor Day weekend. We've put them all together in one handy-dandy map for your viewing pleasure. Enjoy!Read More
Where to Watch Fireworks This Summer in the Hamptons
1. North Sea Fire Department Carnival and Fireworks
Southampton, NY 11968
Date: 7/1, 7/3
Now in its 71th year, the North Sea Fire Department's annual carnival combines two of our favorite things: rides and fireworks.
2. 29th Annual American Picnic
Southampton, NY 11968
Time: after 7PM
Grucci fireworks. The event benefits Southampton Fresh Air Home; please consider donating. Can be seen from other spots.
3. Sag Harbor Yacht Club
You can check out Sag Harbor's fireworks display from Havens Beach, Marine Park, Long Wharf...anywhere near the harbor, really.
4. Devon Yacht Club
Though the Devon Yacht Club may be a private affair, the unwashed masses can view their annual display from Fresh Pond Beach. Or, if you've got a friend living in the area, invite yourself over.
5. Grangebel Park, Riverhead
Riverhead, NY 11901
Hosted by the Riverhead Business Improvement District.
6. Westhampton Country Club
Westhampton Beach, NY 11978
Time: around 9
The Village's Great Lawn has spectacular views.
7. Montauk Chamber of Commerce
Sponsored by the Montauk Chamber of Commerce and put on by Grucci. It can be viewed from any ocean beach but is over Umbrella. You might want to consider getting there a bit early as parking is hard to come by. Rain date: July 5, 9PM.
8. Crescent Beach
Shelter Island, NY 11965
Canceled by the SI Chamber of Commerce, a group of locals fundraised to put the show on again this year.
9. Great Bonac Fireworks Show
Now in its 35nd year, the GBFS takes place over Three Mile Harbor in East Hampton/Springs. Check it out from Maidstone Park or Sammy’s Beach. A fundraising campaign put on the show this year, but its future is uncertain.
10. Main Beach
The last display of the season belongs to the East Hampton Village and its fire department. Why so late in the season? A little endangered bird called the piping plover. July 4th will be a distant memory by this point, but it's always a nice way to end the summer.
