Personal fireworks are illegal in the city
To report fireworks violations in your neighborhood, call the non-emergency dispatch line at 303-288-1535. Fireworks complaints will be given priority among non-emergency calls in the period around July 4. Do not call 911 to report fireworks violations, since this could slow down response times for life-threatening emergencies.
While there are some fireworks stands that appear to be within the city, these stands are actually located in pockets of unincorporated Adams County and are not subject to the city’s ban on selling and possessing fireworks. Even if purchased legally outside the city, these fireworks remain illegal to possess to use within the city.
