Past Event

Sky Wars—the U.S. Invitational Fireworks Championship—will hold its 18th annual invitational competition on Saturday, Sept. 23 in Innsbrook, Missouri outside the greater St. Louis area. Presented by the Missouri Pyrotechnics Association (MoPyro), the event features 3+ hours of world-class pyrotechnic displays, fireballs, drones and large-scale fireworks rarely seen launched at other public events.

With over three hours of incredible sky entertainment, Sky Wars features invitation-only pyrotechnicians who are among the nation’s top display choreographers. This year, eight highly skilled teams will create award-winning pyromusicals—or “concerts in the sky”—which combine the artistry of music and pyrotechnics, scripted to the hundredth of a second. 

The display lineup features more than just fireworks: the Fireball Dudes (who set an unofficial world record with their signature gasoline fireballs at the 2022 Sky Wars event) present massive fireball sequences each year. Sky Elements will also return to present a large-scale drone show with 600 drones for their second annual appearance at Sky Wars.

This outdoor event kicks off in the early afternoon with daytime activities for all ages! Event goers can enjoy a Festival Area from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m. which features a Children’s Fun Zone, food and beverage vendors, and live music. For those who prefer to wine and dine, a VIP section is available with a private viewing area, catered buffet, full bar, and complimentary light beverages. Details at
