Flyer Guide: Where to watch fireworks in Northwest Arkansas in 2023

( sj liew / C.C. 2.0)

Put on your red, white and blue tank top and your freedom hat, pick up a pack of hot dogs, and get ready to watch some fireworks, everyone. It’s almost time for the 4th.

As we do every year, we’ve scoured the internet searching for local fireworks displays and Independence Day celebrations to try and answer the question, “Where can I watch fireworks in Fayetteville (or Farmington, or Prairie Grove, or West Fork, Rogers, etc.) in 2023?”

There isn’t an official municipal-sponsored display in Fayetteville, but there are always plenty of private displays visible in town on the 4th. Just look up.

We did find several displays around the region, however, and most of them are free to attend and open to the public.

We’ll also likely add to this list between now and the holiday, and as always, feel free to let us know about anything we missed.

Happy 4th of July, everyone.
