2017 MAPAG Events

MAPAG events include live events where we make and shoot fireworks, and non-live events where we work on club projects. We have seven live events, which take place on the last weekend of the month, from Thursday through Sunday, beginning in April and running through October. The November through March months are for working on club projects and the holiday party in December.

Note that we will not have shoot permits to shoot fireworks when our 2017 season opens. In order to be able to shoot, we need to get through the Supplemental Use Permit zoning process in Orange County. We have done a lot of work toward that goal, and we anticipate that we will be through the process in time for the August, September, and October shoots.

When we do have shoot permits, they are good for Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, from 1 PM to 11 PM. During school nights, all shooting ends at 9 PM. To reduce the impact of noise on the surrounding neighborhood, we request that aerial salutes and large bottom shots be fired on Saturdays. Sundays are for clean up and magazine inventory.  These are the dates and locations for MAPAG events for the 2017 season.

For events at the farm, tent camping and parking for RV's is available at the farm at no cost. There are also a limited number of electrical hookups along the fence line. There are no showers on the farm, and access to potable water requires you to drive to the other end of the farm, so bring plenty of water with you for washing and cooking.  We rent portable toilets for each event and bathroom facilities are available.  Because this is a working farm, campfires must be kept in a metal fire dish instead of on the ground. You may want to bring some wood for your fire.  For directions to the farm, click here.
