Red Fireworks
2022 Title_edited.png

SummerFest & Fireworks returns to Stafford on Wednesday, June 29, to celebrate Independence Day with food trucks, live music, dazzling pyrotechnics, and more!

A cornerstone Town event and summer kick-off tradition, the fireworks display is made possible by sponsor Stafford Savings Bank, a longtime supporter who ensures the grand community tradition continues each year. The event kicks off with sought-after food trucks pulling in from around the state, lawn games, live music from Loveland Hill Band, the Stafford Lions Club Cornhole Tournament, and more! 

Loveland Hill Band performs LIVE at 6:00 p.m. 

Loveland Hill Band is back in 2022, taking the stage at 6:00 p.m. and playing a diverse repertoire of rock, pop, and dance tributes until the fireworks take flight at 9:30 p.m. While Loveland Hill Band entertains audiences across southern New England, the ensemble’s guitarist, Earl Middleton, has special ties to Stafford as the School Resource Officer. Officer Middleton, a sworn officer of the Stafford Police Department, plays an important role in maintaining a safe school environment while fostering positive relationships between students and officers. An extension of community-oriented spirit, Loveland Hill Band also promises a fun evening of live music. 


Admission and parking are free, all activities will take place at the Stafford High School, located at 145 Orcuttville Road in Stafford, Connecticut. The rural venue provides sprawling fields lush with grass and unobstructed views that are virtually void of ambient light – it’s a choice spot to spread out a blanket and enjoy this year’s fireworks. Parking and viewing areas will be designated throughout the complex. 


If the weather forces the cancellation of the show, it will be held on Thursday, June 30.
