  • CANCELLED- Fireworks over Dillon Reservoir- On Tuesday, April 19, the Frisco July 4th fireworks display’s special event permit application was denied by the Dillon Reservoir Recreation Committee, which includes Summit County, the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, Denver Water, the US Forest Service (abstained from voting), and the Towns of Dillon and Frisco. The permit was denied by a majority of the committee because of impacts on traffic, watershed, and wildlife; ongoing major road construction in Summit County and on I70; anticipated fire danger; and a lack of consensus among the Towns and Summit County.

*All activities/events included in the 4th of July schedule are subject to change.

An Old Fashioned Day With Friends and Family

The focus of 4th of July can still be on spending the day celebrating in a simpler, small town way with friends and family. There are many great ways to celebrate Independence Day in Frisco including backyard BBQs, hikes with family, fishing, getting out on Dillon Reservoir, toasting to our independence at local restaurants, strolling Main Street, trying your hand at disc golfing on our free course, going on a chuck wagon dinner ride, taking a bike ride on over 55 miles of recreation path or on miles of singletrack dirt trails, and challenging yourself at our free bike park.
