Fireworks & the Law

If you bought fireworks to set off for Independence Day and Pioneer Day, note that the last time you can set off fireworks this July is on July 27. Utah laws specifically state that certain Class C fireworks may be discharged in Utah three days before, on the day of, and three days after four specific holidays: July 4, July 24, January 1, and Chinese New Year.

The Department of Public Safety publishes an approved fireworks list each year. This year's list was last revised on July 1, 2009.

In addition to state law, many local ordinances list rules regarding fireworks. To find out if your city or county has a local ordinance about fireworks, locate the local municipality you want to check, and then determine if the local ordinance is available to search online. If it isn't, contact the local city or county clerk.
