Summer starts and ends with a bang on Hilton Head Island. Throughout summer, travelers and locals alike can enjoy stunning fireworks displays at Shelter Cove HarbourFest, an iconic summer event. The team at Beach Properties of Hilton Head is here to shed some light on the HarbourFest fireworks so you can enjoy them during your stay. Here’s everything you need to know about the HarbourFest fireworks. 

What is HarbourFest?

HarbourFest is an annual summer event series at Shelter Cove Harbour & Marina on Hilton Head Island. Beginning Memorial Day weekend, HarbourFest celebrates summer with family-friendly entertainment multiple times a week. HarbourFest highlights include live music, arts and crafts, kids activities, and the main event, spectacular fireworks. Best of all, HarbourFest is free to attend, making this event a must-visit on any budget.

HarbourFest Fireworks Schedule

The 2024 HarbourFest fireworks schedule includes 12 fireworks displays. See the schedule below:

  • Tuesdays: June 4, 11, 18, & 25

  • Thursday: July 4

  • Tuesdays: July 9, 16, 23, & 30

The fireworks begin when the sky is dark. That’s when the fun starts. A kaleidoscope of bright bursts fills the night sky, lighting up the marina with dazzling shades of all sorts of vibrant colors. The reflections of the fireworks shimmering across the water's surface make the experience even more breathtaking. Local musician Shannon Tanner adds to the display by providing soft music arranged for the fireworks to create an even more magical experience.

If you have a drone, leave it at home. No drones are permitted during the HarbourFest fireworks.
