Worcester 2021 Independence Day Fireworks Cancelled

 by TWIW StaffMay 5, 2021

Organizers of Worcester’s Independence Day fireworks cancelled the event for 2021 in a statement on Wednesday, May 5.

The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, the City of Worcester, Discover Central Massachusetts, and presenting sponsor Fallon Health, issued a joint statement making the announcement.

This is the second straight year organizers cancel the event.

The statement said the decision is out of an abundance of caution and they felt it best to “… avoid large, in-person gatherings where it’s more difficult to control the spread of the virus.”

Chamber President and CEO Tim Murray said, “… we’re confident we can return to this annual, family-friendly event in 2022.”

The Worcester Red Sox, scheduled to play at Polar Park on July 2, July 3 and July 4, plan to deploy fireworks on those days.
