State lawmakers decided there needs to be more room in the calendar for Texas fireworks.
New for 2016, state residents can buy fireworks on Texas Independence Day (March 2), San Jacinto Day (April 21) and Memorial Day (May 30), in addition to New Year’s Day and July 4.
The Fine Print About the New Texas Fireworks Laws
The expansion of the fireworks calendar comes with a couple of caveats, though:
- Each county has final say on whether to adopt these additional sales dates.
- The law doesn’t affect cities that have year-round fireworks bans.
When You Can Buy Fireworks for the New Dates
Texas’ fireworks laws also specify when fireworks will be sold for these three new holidays:
- Texas Independence Day – February 25 – March 2
- San Jacinto Day – April 16 – April 21
- Memorial Day – The Wednesday before the last Monday in May, ending at midnight on the last Monday.

Important note: Along with the new regulations, lawmakers axed Texas’ 2% fireworks tax.
