Kingsport Fireworks Demonstration
September 7 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 8:00 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until September 10, 2022
Fireworks demonstration at Hunter Wright Stadium Kingsport’s Dogwood Park will close at 7 p.m. from Sept 6-10 The National Fireworks Association is hosting its annual meeting and exhibition at the Meadowview Conference Resort and Convention Center next week (Sept 6-10). This marks the second time Kingsport has hosted the event and officials anticipate more than 700 people from around the world will attend. As part of the event, the NFA plans to hold fireworks demonstrations at Hunter Wright Stadium each night of the meeting from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. The fireworks being demonstrated are the small shell variety and not like those typically seen during Independence Day or Fun Fest displays. “These are going to be wholesalers who sell to retailers, who will then sell them to the public,’ said Lara Potter, associate executive director of Visit Kingsport. “There’s not going to be large public displays like you would see at a commercial show.” In light of the fireworks demonstrations, Dogwood Park – located adjacent to Hunter Wright Stadium – will close at 7 p.m. Sept. 6-10. If you want to watch the fireworks demonstrations inside Hunter Wright Stadium, the NFA is offering two opportunities for the public to attend – on Friday and Saturday evening. Tickets are $5 per person per night and can only be purchased online at https://bit.ly/3Q4ffF4. For more information about the event, contact Visit Kingsport at 392-8800. About the City of Kingsport Founded in 1917, the City of Kingsport (pop. 55,400) is located on the Tennessee-Virginia border at the crossroads of I-81 and I-26 near the geographic center of the eastern U.S. The city is widely known as a planned community, designed by renowned city planner John Nolen and wrapping around the foot of Bays Mountain – a 3,650-acre park, nature preserve, planetarium and observatory. Kingsport is recognized as an International Safe Community by the National Safety Council, a Healthier Tennessee community, and won the 2009 Harvard Innovations in American Government Award for its higher education initiatives. While many city names are duplicated throughout the U.S., there’s only one Kingsport – a fact that invokes community pride, known locally as the “Kingsport Spirit.”
