Fourth of July, 2022 Fireworks and Festivities for Westchester County NY

Here are the best places to view the 4th of July fireworks in Westchester County, NY.  Compared to most years, the choices for fireworks and festivities are limited, but compared to last year, they are abundant.  And, it sounds like the weather will be perfect this year – not too hot, not too humid.


Fireworks in Westchester county for 4th of July 2022


Please note that many fireworks have been cancelled this year as fireworks are in short supply (as well as the risk for fires).  In addition, these events require a lot of planning and most decisions were made in January/February before most towns could predict safety measures, so many took the more conservative route.


I’m glad that New York is opening up, and it’s a great time to rest, relax and celebrate outdoors with friends and family.  If you choose to have a small and relaxed BBQ and gathering, that’s awesome.  There are so many fireworks that there’s a good chance that you can see them from the comfort of your backyard or balcony. Or, you can venture out to see the official fireworks.


Below are the Independence Day/Fourth of July fireworks for Westchester, NY.  Please note that there are fireworks and festivities planned for many days, and I’ve ordered these in chronological order to make your planning easier.  There are a few events that are offered more than once, so I repeated those to make your calendar planning easier.

July 4th Fireworks Cruises 2022 – These are in NYC (Manhattan)

Many of these cruises depart from NYC and if you plan on doing a cruise, plan ahead as you need to purchase tickets and many places will get sold out. All listed cruises are on July 4th.



A boat cruise provides AMAZING views of the City as you can see the water and the NYC skyline illuminated.  In particular, the Macy’s 4th of July fireworks is amazing.  But, one of the extra cool things about the cruises is that you’ll see many fireworks all along the rivers and you’ll have an unobstructed view up and down the rivers.  Plus, you won’t have to battle the insane city crowds.


For this reason, the cruises are not cheap.  Many run $300+ per person.  Those that are under $200 are no frills and have cash bars and buffets.  (You may want to eat before to reduce some of your costs).  It’s ideal to call ahead and confirm the details so you know what you’re paying for.


If you’re bringing kids along, make sure kids are allowed.  And, generally shorter cruises are better (for obvious reasons).


Be sure to check out boarding and departing times.  Once the cruise has sailed, it’s not coming back.  Allow enough time for parking, too (and potential road closures).


Departs from Pier 83 at 42nd Street and the Hudson River (NYC)
$179 per person; $259 for a premium ticket

This cruise will go down the Hudson River to the tip of Manhattan with great views of the Statue of Liberty and One World Trade Center.  The Macy’s fireworks display will last 30 minutes (probably the longest show in the region).


Everyone will have access to the complementary beer and wine as well as a free buffet.  You can also upgrade to a premium ticket for a full open bar, hors d’oeuvres and VIP seating.


Tickets sell out, so plan ahead.


Departs from Pier 81 West Side at 41st Street and the Hudson River (NYC)

$165 per person


Includes a box meal (Turkey, Tuna or Roast Beef sandwich, lettuce & tomato, pasta salad, chips, two cookies, piece of fruit and a soft drink or water).  A cash bar is also available.


Book ahead!  They sell out quickly.



This is a dinner cruise, complete with a 3 course buffet, DJ and games.  Enjoy spectacular views of the Brooklyn Bridge, One World Trade Center and the Statue of Liberty.


This is a 5 hour cruise.  Boarding is at 5pm and the cruise is 6-11pm.


Departs from Pier 81 | West 41st Street & 12th Ave (NYC)
$199 per person

This includes a BBQ bash, dessert, unlimited beer, wine, juice, and soda.


2430 FDR Drive, Service Road East, New York, New York 10010Departs from Skyport Marina at 23rd Street and FDR Drive
$190 per person

Enjoy the views from the Capital Princess yacht. The cruise includes a live DJ, an open bar, and dinner buffet.



This is an exclusive luxury cruise with a 6 course seated dinner and a top shelf open bar.  There is a live DJ and dancing.  There is a dress code – cocktail attire.  It is a bit expensive, and they do offer less expensive cruises, but those are sold out for this year (so book early next year).


You’ll cruise by the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governors Island, the Brooklyn Bridge, Freedom Tower and the awe-inspiring Manhattan skyline.

    1. No…it isn’t. As I mentioned at the beginning, there are several towns that have not published their info, and Dobbs Ferry is one of them. That is the info for LAST YEAR’S DATE. At the beginning, I said that if it has 2017, the info has NOT BEEN CONFIRMED yet. If/when they do publish, I will update it. Or, if you find somewhere that has updated info, then let me know.

  1. Madeline Parker

    Please, include a possible list of Hudson River Cruises initiating in Westchester County, to view fireworks in NY Harbor, as well. Even though these cruises may be sponsored by private companies with fees, information on their contact location would be appreciated.

    1. Madeline – I will look into that. Do you know where those are listed? Note: I may not get to this until next week (as I have a lot on my plate this week). Great idea, though.

  2. Thank you. Patch didn’t list Tarrytown and we really wanted to go there – it is a family tradition.

  3. hey there! thanks for this list. in port chester the high school where the fireworks are every year is actually under construction. idk if the village is still doing fireworks this year or not. i tried calling them but the girl who answered didn’t know either.

  4. Hi there! Thank you so much for your detailed list – so helpful. By any chance , do you know a good point on the Westchester side of Hudson river where the fireworks at West Point can be watched? Much appreciated!

  5. Thank you for this list. I’m just curious why you didn’t include the fireworks from Yonkers pier?
