Fireworks Regulations

Fireworks Regulations

Due to high fire danger and ongoing drought conditions, there is a burn ban and an ordinance in effect that bans the use of all fireworks in the City of Centennial.

The ban will remain in effect until this order is formally rescinded or temporarily suspended by the Arapahoe County Sheriff, and such date cannot be determined at this time. The ban does not apply to professional fireworks shows that are supervised by firefighting personnel that provides fire suppression equipment on the scene of any fireworks display. Please be safe and mindful this Independence Day.

Regulations When Burn Ban is Not in Effect

Centennial residents may use and possess certain “permissible fireworks”, limited only to those that do not explode, leave the ground or fly through the air.

For example sparklers, cones, snakes and fountains are now allowed. The decision to allow certain types of fireworks is consistent with the State of Colorado and Arapahoe County and was made after reviewing feedback received from Centennial citizens and discussions with the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office and Fire Districts. The City also conducted a citizen survey and 69 percent of respondents were in favor of updating the City’s current fireworks regulations to allow for the use and possession of “permissible fireworks”.

The sale of all forms of fireworks in Centennial continues to be prohibited. The use and possession of all forms of fireworks will continue to be prohibited in parks and open spaces in the City.

In the case of a fire ban, fireworks would be included and enforced by the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, along with local fire and code officials.

Remember fireworks can be dangerous. Please be safe and responsible. View Fireworks Safety Tips.
