Don’t miss Delaware’s best fireworks show! This members-only event is a spectacular evening of family fun held two Fridays every Summer.

This year's theme, "All Aboard!" celebrates the history of railroads in the United States. Hagley has one of the premier collections that documents the history of this storied industry. The allure of train travel is enduring, and millions still love to ride the rails each year.

Tickets must be purchased in advance. Members who purchase tickets are encouraged to bring a picnic dinner, blankets, coolers, and chairs.

The event includes a raffle and a silent auction with wonderful prizes. Bring address labels for the back of the raffle tickets, or order personalized, pre-printed raffle tickets here that you can pick up at the raffle booth that evening.

This event is weather dependent; check Hagley's home page for postponement announcements. Bad weather dates are the following Saturdays and Sundays.

Attendance is by reservation only, with ticket sales limited to Hagley members. To become a member click here or call (302) 658-2400, ext. 235

Hagley thanks M&T Bank and Wilmington Trust, the presenting sponsor for Hagley's fireworks.
