Donate to the Bayfield 4th of July Fireworks Fund

After the City of Bayfield could no longer continue the 4th of July Fireworks, we agreed to manage this for our community, business and visitors. 

We understand the positive economic impact and strong family traditions this event has on the entire community. 

Those of you who have lodgers, diners, shoppers, friends, and family who have come to Bayfield to experience FIREWORKS and all that Bayfield has to offer. Your generous donation will directly contribute to the Bayfield Fireworks fund. Below are our contributions to date. 

Donations to date: $7,433

Goal: $15,000

Our previous investment on the 4th  of July Festivities for Concerts by the Lake will continue in Memorial Park. Live music will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end right before the fireworks. 

We are confident that with your support, we can make a significant difference in our community. As a valued member of our community, your involvement is critical to the success of our effort. 

If you are interested in the continuation of the Fireworks display and celebration please act now.  Donations can be mailed to the Bayfield Chamber and Visitor Bureau, PO Box 138, Bayfield, WI 54814, or dropped off at 42 S Broad Street.
