Dedicated to the safe, artful and legal use of pyrotechnics.


The NHPA is an all-volunteer organization made up of firework enthusiasts that have a wide range of pyrotechnic interests. While most of our members are from the northeastern US, we have members all up and down the East Coast and from as far away as California.

Our club shoots and other events are held mostly in the state of New Hampshire, while some of our meetings are held in neighboring states for the travel convenience of our members.

If you’re interested in learning what it take to put on a professional fireworks display that is hand or electrically fired, we do it at every shoot and we’ll show you how it’s done. We can also show you what’s involved in setting up a display for a Class C (consumer firework) show. Ever wonder what’s inside a firework? Interested in learning how fireworks are made? NHPA members build some of the most advanced and spectacular rockets, girandolas, ball shells and other pyrotechnic devices you’ll ever see.
