4th of July Fireworks Spectacular

Nags Head's 4th of July Spectacular 2019

The Town of Nags Head is hosting, in conjunction with the Nags Head Fishing Pier and the Outer Banks Visitors Bureau, the annual Independence Day Fireworks Spectacular on Thursday, July 4, 2019 at 9:25 p.m. on the ocean pier located at Mile Post 11.5 on NC Route 12, S. Virginia Dare Trail in Nags Head. A rain date has been set for Friday, July 5. The fireworks display will last approximately 20 minutes.

Parking at and near the fireworks display site will be directed by the Nags Head Police Department. Those attending the show are encouraged to park east of U.S. Highway 158/S. Croatan Highway. Those choosing to park west of U.S. Highway 158/S. Croatan Highway should use extreme caution while attempting to cross this heavily traveled roadway.  

All persons attending this event are reminded not to use or block private driveways. Vehicles blocking driveways or presenting a traffic hazard before, during, or immediately following this event will be towed. The Town of Nags Head requests that persons use the public beach accesses as pathways to the oceanfront. Please stay off the environmentally sensitive dune and do not use the private property of others, such as private gazebos or decks, to view the fireworks without the property owner’s permission.  

No vehicles, with the exception of authorized Town and emergency vehicles, will be allowed on the oceanfront beaches.

The following public beach accesses are recommended for access to the beach for fireworks viewing:

Curlew Street    
Hollowell Street    
Conch Street    

North of Nags Head Fishing Pier
Bladen Street
Bittern Street

Jockey’s Ridge State Park is another ideal spot for viewing the fireworks. Other local fireworks may be seen but distantly. The park will be open late July 4th to accommodate visitors. Please call the park at 252-441-7132 for more information.  

At the conclusion of the fireworks, spectator, pedestrian, and vehicular traffic exiting the area will be directed and controlled by Nags Head police officers.

The Town of Nags Head wishes to express its gratitude to Andy and Lovie McCann and the entire staff of the Nags Head Fishing Pier for agreeing to co-host this event.
