Ventura County Fireworks Shows for July 4th Weekend 2021

When Governor Newsom lifted the mask mandate last week, Californians rejoiced. Residents and visitors to Ventura get to enjoy local events like Steel Drum Saturdays and Live Music Sundays without any face coverings. And with temperatures beginning to heat up, that makes it even more pleasant. Last year, most Ventura County cities canceled their fireworks displays due to COVID concerns. This year, we see a return of normalcy (of sorts). Here is a list of some of the places you can catch Ventura County fireworks shows for the July 4th weekend this year.

Live Ventura County fireworks shows are back and more exciting than ever  for this July 4th 2021 holiday weekend. Find out where to see them here.
