No Fireworks, but It’s Still July 4th in Wilton — What You Need to Know

While this year may look different in Wilton for Independence Day, residents can still be patriotic and enjoy the holiday. Here is the July 4, 2021 weekend guide.

No July 4 Fireworks

While Wilton residents had hoped to look forward to the annual fireworks display, there will be no town-sponsored events this year. As GOOD Morning Wilton previously reported, there was too much uncertainty about whether large gatherings would still be limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. That unpredictability left no time for adequate planning.

Merwin Meadows 

Merwin Meadows will be open to both residents and non-residents on Sunday, July 4. Day passes are available for purchase at the Parks and Recreation office Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. — which makes Friday the last day for both residents and non-residents to get day passes before the holiday. Seasonal passes are currently sold out for non-residents. The grills in the park are now available for use for anyone who wants to barbeque at the park.

Updated Hours — What’s Open

Village Market will be closing an hour earlier on Sunday, July 4, and will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. The rest of the weekend the store will operate at normal hours (7 a.m.-7 p.m.).
