Before you purchase an expensive haul of fireworks, make sure that you can legally ignite and use them in the District. In general, any firework that explodes is illegal in the city. Any person found using or in the possession of illegal fireworks in the District of Columbia could face fines and penalties of up to $2,000 and/or arrest. Learn which fireworks are legal in the District of Columbia.
Please note that fireworks are NOT allowed on ANY DPR properties, fields, basketball courts or tennis courts.
  • Setting off certain types of fireworks is dangerous in an urban setting with the cluster of dense housing and flammable materials.
