annual Fort Dalles Fourth Fireworks “Distance” Display scheduled for Saturday July 4th at 10 pm.

This year, due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, no public gathering locations will be open to view the fireworks show. On Saturday 7/4/20 from 5-11 pm the following locations will be closed:

To ensure the continued safety of our community, it is important that all social distancing guidelines from the Governor’s Executive Order for the State of Oregon and are followed for this event.

Additional information about the current status of the Executive Order and phased reopening plan for Wasco County can be found at As always, local law enforcement will have an increased presence during the holiday weekend.

While the normal large gathering locations for viewing will not be open this year, we encourage everyone to tune into KATU Channel 2 to watch the display safely from home. We are very grateful that due to our unique location, hard work by our FD4 committee, support from our fireworks vendor and incredible generosity from our sponsors, we do not have to cancel our show AND we get to share this amazing display with the State of Oregon.

Once again, we would like to thank the following sponsors for making Fort Dalles Fourth possible this year: RED, WHITE & BLUE Sponsors: A Kidz Dental Zone, Columbia Gorge Affordable Homes, Hattenhauer Energy LLC., Timmons Law P.C.

Westwind Frame & Gallery, and Smoke Wring BBQ and generous donations from Bernert Barge Lines and Western Display Fireworks.


  1. Great! A display with no way of viewing it because of the dictatorial actions if a Democrat Governor taking away our rights to peaceably gather on, of all days, the 4th of July. For a disease that has a lower morbidity rate than the flu. THAT IS IRONY!
