The only days that fireworks are allowed to be set off in Richmond are as follows:

1.  Prohibited conduct and Violations. 

  1. No person shall ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks within the City, except as follows: 

On the following days after 11 a.m.:

  2. The Saturday and Sunday immediately preceding Memorial Day until 11:45 p.m. on each of those days.

  6. The Friday and Saturday immediately following Labor Day until 11:45 p.m. on each of those days.

This ordinance does allow for some exceptions.  Residents may apply to seek an exception to be allowed to ignite, discharge or use consumer fireworks for special events such as weddings, significant anniversaries or significant birthdays.

Please be sure to get your completed application to the City Clerk before the City Council meeting prior to your event. City Council meets the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month.
