Sugarbush's Annual 4th of July Fireworks is back on! Though expect things to look a little different. This year we plan to have a number of safety protocols in place, which have been approved by the Vermont Agency of Commerce and Community Development. The event will be hosted in collaboration with the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce and will benefit the Mad River Valley Community Fund. A donation of $20 is suggested upon reservation but you can also donate even if you do not plan to attend the event.


To keep everyone happy and healthy, this will be a reservations only, drive-in event.
