Elk RiverFest Indefinitely Postponed - Fireworks Remain on July 4

Elk RiverFest PostponedAt the Monday, May 18 Elk River City Council meeting, a decision was made to indefinitely postpone Elk RiverFest planned for Saturday, July 4, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and concerns with large group gatherings. Fireworks will continue as planned at dusk on Independence Day. The fireworks will be launched from Elk River High School, and as we near that date we’ll provide tips on the best viewing areas as well as social distancing guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all spectators.

The Council has asked city staff to explore the logistics of moving Elk RiverFest 2020 to Labor Day weekend, which will be further discussed at the June 15 City Council meeting. Be sure to check the designated Elk RiverFest web page and follow Elk River City Government on Facebook for all the latest information on this community festival and the possibility of moving it to another date.
