The evening concludes with one of the best fireworks shows in the region, cascading colorful lights over the beautiful Tennessee River. After all, what's a summer festival without a great fireworks display?
Chattanooga Pops on the River
Nothing beats spending Fourth of July on the Tennessee River, listening to free music, and watching fireworks. The Chattanooga Symphony & Opera Orchestra sets a patriotic mood with traditional tunes from America’s most influential composers. The entertainment begins at 5 p.m. and the CSO will perform at 8 p.m. followed by fireworks at 9:45 p.m. on Tuesday, July 3.
Where should I park?
There will be free shuttle service running from the Republic parking lots (previously owned by UNUM) between 4th and 5th Streets from 4:30-11:00 p.m. If you want to beat the crowds, consider renting bikes from Chattanooga Bike Share. Pick-up stations are located across town, adjacent to convenient street parking. Upon reaching the park, the bikes can be easily dropped off at the station at Outdoor Chattanooga.
When should I arrive to beat the crowds?
The earlier, the better. Some people arrive early in the day, others at the last minute. The best time to start getting set-up is between 4–4:30 p.m.
What should I bring?
For the full experience, consider packing lawn chairs or a blanket. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can even pack a picnic dinner; however food and drink concessions are available.
Where else can I view the show?
The fireworks are shot over the Tennessee River so watching from the Riverfront near the Tennessee Aquarium and the Walnut Street Bridge are great alternatives. You can also see the show from the Southern Belle Riverboat during their evening Firework Cruise.
Don't miss the giant fireworks show and see the sky light up at Lake Winnie! Visit the award winning amusement and water parks on Monday, July 2 and Wednesday, July 4 for a spectacular fireworks show.
Fireworks displays will start promptly at 10 p.m. each night.
Collegedale’s Independence Day Concert and Fireworks
Don't miss the City of Collegedale's Freedom Celebration Tuesday, July 3. Festivities begin at 5 p.m. and will include live music at two venues - Veterans Memorial Park and the train car platform at Imagination Station. Participate in The Red White and Boom Glow Run 5K hosted by Scenic City Multisport at 8 p.m. and then catch the firework show at 9:45 p.m.
