Downtown Jacksonville

The City of Jacksonville will put on its annual fireworks display over the St. Johns River on Saturday! Say goodbye to 2022 and ring in the New Year on the waterfront with friends or family.

This year fireworks will be launched from a barge on the St. Johns River between the Hyatt and DoubleTree hotels and high above the St. Johns River from the Acosta Bridge. The show can be viewed from both the North and South banks in Downtown Jacksonville — in addition to viewing from Brooklyn and under the Fuller Warren Bridge where the Riverside Arts Market is held. The fireworks show will begin at midnight to ring in 2023.
