How Much Do Fireworks Cost?

If you’re ready to set up the most awesome fireworks display of your life, you’ll probably want to know how much they cost. Given the variety and size of the fireworks we sell, there are plenty of ways to make your experience as lavish and or affordable as you desire. In this post, we want to briefly cover how to budget effectively for your next amazing pyrotechnical adventure.

Fireworks Cost Very Little or Very Much

The inquiry about the cost of fireworks is another loaded question (just like fireworks) because it greatly varies depending on what you want. They could run for as little as 25 cents for a smoke bomb or two, or you could run up a bill of well over $1,000 with something containing dozens of shots. We strongly recommend you take three very important steps when deciding to buy fireworks:

  1. Establish a “fireworks budget” and stick to it.
  2. Have a plan before purchasing. Figure out what you really want (i.e., a big display, or something simple, maybe a few roman candles, and so forth).
  3. Go to the Black Cat Fireworks website first and do all your homework on fireworks types.

Doing this gives you the chance to set boundaries and prevent overspending. Plus, this is your opportunity to research product types and figure out what you like and dislike.

Fireworks Vary in Cost Depending on Dealer

When you buy certain things, it’s possible to shop around for the exact same product and compare prices from one location to the next (either online or in stores). This is more difficult with fireworks because many vendors aren’t open all year long, so it seems like nobody has a good feel for the typical price of anything. That’s why you should visit our stores to gauge prices.

We caution consumers to be mindful of some of the questionable practices you might see at retail some retail outlets (typically the temporary, seasonal ones). It’s nothing to come across a firework stand where they don’t have price tags on anything, and you only figure out the cost once you get to the checkout counter. Reputable vendors don’t do this, so try to avoid those operations and stick to reliable fireworks brands like Black Cat Fireworks.

Finally, we must briefly mention the various fireworks types, different measurement units, and whether you can reliably compare and contrast items. In general, you’ll find that certain products are clearly more valuable than others . . . in theory. However, at times the theory doesn’t hold if you start looking at other factors.

For example, a 500g cake usually costs more than a 200g cake, unless the 200g cake has way more shots packed into it.

Fireworks Cost Less If You Can Spot Lucrative Promotions

There’s also the question of whether you want to buy fireworks individually or in an assortment or package deal. This is entirely dependent on your personal preferences. We find that folks who want a quick fireworks program for their family gathering often elect to go with the assortment deal because they’re looking for convenience.

If, on the other hand, you know you really want something specific, it might be better to compare individually and seek out the best possible deal. All of this is pretty relative, but no matter what, know what you want and keep an eye out for those lucrative flash sales or early season sales. And sales after the 4th of Jul. Many retailers have July 5th sales.
