Largest fireworks display in Oregon to fill horizon with color and effects
Oregon Food Bank’s Waterfront Blues Festival celebrates the Fourth of July each year with a spectacular display of fireworks … the largest July 4 fireworks display in Oregon.
Entry to the Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, including the fireworks show, is a donation of $10 (or more) plus two cans (or more) of nonperishable food, or your purchased festival pass. Learn more about festival entry and passes.
100 of all donations benefit Oregon Food Bank’s mission: to eliminate hunger and its root causes … because no one should be hungry.

Five-generation family business
Since 1992, when Oregon Food Bank added fireworks to its Waterfront Blues Festival, Western Display Fireworks has produced the display with Bob Gobet, company owner, as the lead pyro-technician. The five-generation family business, located in Canby, Ore., originated in 1948 and has been producing fireworks shows for more than 60 years in the Northwest and around the United States.
