Grand Geneva Independence Day Activities and Fireworks

Celebrate Independence Day with Grand Geneva and Timber Ridge! Grand Geneva invites the residents of the surrounding communities and travelers alike to our spectacular events on Tuesday, July 3, 2019.  

In the mood for fireworks? Combined with 1,300 stunning acres of Wisconsin countryside, Grand Geneva's fireworks show is the best in the state! While our Grand Picnic and fireworks show is typically the day before July 4th, we have a bevy of activities for guests and local communities the entire week of Independence Day. For the latest information, visit


Starting at 5pm

Outdoor family-friendly games and entertainment fill the lakeside of the resort, starting at 5pm. Jump around for some inflatable fun, get your face painted, or caricature drawn. Temporary tattoo and balloon artists, plus midway games turn our Grand Picnic into the event of the year. Grand Geneva has once again partnered with Lake Geneva Food Pantry by asking everyone to donate two non-perishable food items to help local community members in need. 

Starting at Dusk

The sky over Grand Geneva explodes for our Independence Day fireworks show. Enjoy the American Legion 21 gun salute and singing of our National Anthem before the show. 

NOTE: Guests are not allowed to bring outside food or coolers to Grand Geneva.
