The Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce hosts the largest fund raising event the “Jaffrey Festival of Fireworks.” The festival is a family friendly event which began in 1990 as a partnership between the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce, Atlas Pyrovision and the Jaffrey Silver Ranch Airpark. On the third Saturday in August the skies over Jaffrey light up with a world class fireworks display, which is choreographed to music by our very own international award winning company ~ Atlas PyroVision, based in Jaffrey, New Hampshire since 1949.

There are numerous activities going on in the Monadnock Region the week of our event. Check out our Stay & Play page to see what’s happening and lodging information. The gates open at 4pm and Live Entertainment is provided by area bands as well as skydivers, rock climbing wall and a variety of game and food vendors. Over the years, the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce has contributed financially to a variety of projects, including the Rails to Trails, the Jaffrey welcome signs, safety equipment for our police, fire and ambulance departments, the Jaffrey Welcome Center as well as many other community improvement projects. The goal of the Jaffrey Chamber of Commerce is to provide for "the betterment of our community"…our vision that keeps on giving!
