The Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce along with the event partners, Atlas PyroVision Productions and the Silver Ranch Airpark announce that the annual Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks has come to an end. We are all deeply saddened by this decision to no longer host the annual summer event held each August at the Jaffrey Airport.
The festival partners after long and thoughtful deliberation, felt that in order for the event to continue, could no longer bare the increase in costs as a result of last years threat of violence and ultimate cancellation. The committee felt that the increased expenses to fully protect the public safety for those who attend, could not be met without significantly increasing entrance fees.
The committee would like to thank the many festival volunteers over the years as well as the local businesses, non-profit organizations and all of the family, friends and fans who have overwhelmingly supported the Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks. It has been our pleasure to provide this annual family event for over 20 years.
