Details on the City of Gaithersburg’s Labor Day Weekend Fireworks Display

The City of Gaithersburg is hosting a fireworks display and picnic that will feature live music and food trucks on Sunday, September 5 at Bohrer Park.

Gaithersburg, which traditionally hosts its “Summerfest” event the weekend of the July 4, postponed this year’s fireworks display due to “uncertainty during the extensive advance planning stages” and rescheduled the event for Labor Day.

Join us as we celebrate our everyday working heroes with a magnificent Labor Day picnic and fireworks display at Bohrer Park at Summit Hall Farm on Sunday, September 5.
