Fireworks Permit

Burn Ban

As a precautionary measure to reduce the potential fire hazard posed by the extensive storm debris throughout Claremore, the City will not issue Fireworks Permits to individual residents within the city limits for the 2024 season.

Instead, the City will host a free fireworks display and Independence Day Spectacular at Claremore Lake on Saturday, June 29, at 9:30 p.m. Extensive planning and preparation have ensured that this event can proceed safely. Additionally, other community fireworks displays that have received commercial permits, such as those hosted by Destiny Life Church, Elks Lodge and Claremore Assembly of God, will continue as planned. Fireworks stands will also remain open, continuing their important role as popular fundraising ventures.
