Fireworks at the Workhouse

July 1 @ 5:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Celebrate Independence Day with your family at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA. Enjoy art exhibits, food trucks, local craft beer and wine, live music, and a spectacular fireworks show! Live music begins at 7pm and fireworks start at dusk, typically just after 9pm. General admission is free and you’re welcome to bring blankets and lawn chairs; parking is available for $20/vehicle. (If the Workhouse lot is full, head to the Vulcan Materials site across from Occoquan Park just south of the Workhouse on Ox Road for more parking – free shuttles will be available.) And if you’re interested in a spectacular VIP Experience with catering by Outback Steakhouse of Springfield, then be sure to read more about FIREWORKS VIP EXPERIENCE tickets.

We’re thrilled to announce that music sensation Shane Gamble will be headlining our entertainment during Workhouse Fireworks! Even better, Shane will be returning to the Workhouse on August 12th for Workhouse Brewfest! Enjoy the video for Shane’s song “Summertime Dream.”



Enjoy the Workhouse Arts Center’s annual fireworks display with a unique VIP Experience! Only VIP ticket holders will receive access to the Springfield Outback Steakhouse Lounge in the McGuireWoods Gallery. VIPs will receive complimentary reserved preferred parking, a private indoor concert from musician Heather Renee and reserved premium seating for the fireworks display. Your VIP ticket also includes buffet-style offerings sponsored and provided by the Springfield Outback Steakhouse along with two beverage tokens, each of which may be exchanged for a single serving of beer, wine or soft drinks. Additional beverages may be purchased a la carte from the VIP Private Bartenders.
