The Hagley Fireworks Show is located on the acreage along the banks of the Brandywine in Wilmington, a well-known site of the gunpowder works founded by E. I. du Pont. The Hagley Museum and Library are located on this beautiful plot of land and are open to the public educating the millions of visitors that pass through to learn about the history of business, industry, and innovation in Delaware.

The library and museum are welcome to people of all ages to investigate and experience the unfolding history of American business, technology, and innovation, and its impact on the world.  The Kenny Family Foundation values the community-oriented goals found at Hagley as they support and promote the importance of health and education with their Let’s Move Program, designed to encourage members to actively wander and learn across their 235 acre site.

If you weren’t able to make it to Hagley’s Fireworks show on Friday, you are in luck! There is one more chance—Friday, June 19th—to secure your tickets to see the extravagant fireworks launched just hundreds of feet away.
