Red, White & Blue Ash 2020 - Cancelled

Red, White & Blue Ash
(Updated May 7, 2020)
For the health and safety of residents, guests, vendors and employees, the City of Blue Ash is announcing the difficult decision to cancel Red, White & Blue Ash on July 4, 2020, at Summit Park.

Due to the uncertainty over the spread of the coronavirus and future statewide orders for large gatherings, it was necessary to cancel the event earlier, rather than later, for the best interest of attendees, employees, sponsors and vendors.

“Red, White & Blue Ash is important to the Blue Ash community and it is important to us. It has been a major part of this City’s identity for decades. This decision was made with heavy hearts, but we believe it is the right thing to do,” said Blue Ash Parks and Recreation Director Brian Kruse. “We know how disappointing it is for the tens of thousands of guests who join us for the 4th of July every year, and we share in that disappointment, but keeping everyone healthy and safe right now must take precedence.”

The only other time Red, White & Blue Ash has been cancelled was due to severe weather in 2005.

Thank you to the supporters, sponsors, vendors and employees who have worked together to make Red, White & Blue Ash one of the top fireworks shows in the country. The City of Blue Ash looks forward to working with you again to bring the community together for incredible Red, White & Blue Ash celebrations in 2021 and beyond.

Like all major local and national events, Red, White & Blue Ash continues to monitor the Covid-19 situation. We will take direction from the CDC, the Governor’s Office, State Health Department and the City of Blue Ash administration.

In this very fluid time, we will rely on health experts’ advice whether to green light our event, proceed in a modified form, or cancel. In the meantime, we are continuing to plan for Red, White & Blue Ash,  including developing the soundtrack, and filing permits.

Stay safe Ohio. We are all in this together.
