About Sky Wars:

Sky Wars, which is presented by the nonprofit Missouri Pyrotechnics Association, is the US Invitational Fireworks Championship and one of the only pyrotechnic competitions in the nation. This outdoor event is nicknamed “A Light and Sound Explosion” and is hailed as a must-see experience for all ages.

The more than two-hour long fireworks event will feature invitation-only pyrotechnicians who are among the nation’s top fireworks display choreographers. Up to 10 highly skilled teams will create award-winning pyromusicals—or “concerts in the sky”—which combine the artistry of music and pyrotechnics.

Sky Wars will feature more than just fireworks: the Fireball Dudes, who hold a world record for their signature gasoline fireballs, present massive and sometimes world-record-breaking fireballs every year at the event.

Tickets range from $30 to $50 per person for general admission and $130 to $160 for an all-inclusive VIP ticket. Children five and under are free. To purchase tickets or for further information, visit the Sky Wars website at skywarsevent.com, or contact the organizers via email  at info@skywarsevent.com or call (314) 730-0793.


*Tickets are non-refundable.

**Sky Wars will happen regardless of rain. If severe weather prevents the performance, the show will take place the next evening (Sunday, September 24, 2023) at 7:30 p.m.

***Sky Wars’ non-profit partner for 2023 is Wags and Whiskers and its efforts to build a no-kill animal shelter in Warren County.
