Similar to numerous locations around the country and after evaluating a range of options for safely holding the 28th Annual Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, event organizers have made the difficult decision to cancel Riverfest and the fireworks show due to restrictions brought forth by the coronavirus pandemic.


The Melaleuca Freedom Celebration, which offers one of the nation’s best fireworks shows on Independence Day, pays tribute to America’s Founding Fathers, as well as the veterans, soldiers and their families who have sacrificed to secure and preserve the freedoms of this great nation.

“This is a must see fireworks display, hosting over 150,000 spectators from all over the Rocky Mountain region.”


Following the success of last year’s show, the 2020 Melaleuca Freedom Celebration will again take place at Snake River Landing. This ideal location safely accommodates crowds, provides spectators a better view of the show, and allows for a large array of pyrotechnic special effects.

The Venue: Snake River Landing

Situated on the western bank of an iconic American-West waterway, Snake River Landing is an idyllic setting for the Melaleuca Freedom Celebration. Spread out over 450 acres, Snake River Landing is a master-planned community that offers wide-open and well-manicured public spaces, scenic vistas, restaurants and shopping.
