Fireworks Enforcement

Fireworks can raise many concerns for the safety and wellbeing of animals, senior citizens, military veterans, refugees, and community members at large. There has also been concern regarding injuries and fires caused by fireworks that can damage property and the environment.


Effective October 29, 2022, all consumer fireworks are banned in the City of Eugene (Council ordinance #20674). People can’t sell, purchase, or use fireworks within the city limits of Eugene. Examples include sparklers, fountains, ground spinners and smoke devices. 


The penalty for violating the ordinance is a maximum penalty of a $500 fine. 


Commercial fireworks displays, approved in advance by the City Manager or approved designee, can still take place between the dates of July 3 – 5.


Anyone with other illegal fireworks or explosive devices is encouraged to call police dispatch at the number below if they would like to coordinate surrender of those devices. Please do not transport such items without prior arrangement with the Metro Explosives Disposal Unit.


Report illegal fireworks use in progress: 541-682-5111


Be Prepared, Be Responsible, Be Safe and Be Aware.
