About Spirit of '76 Wedding Sparklers

Many people ask, "Where can I find sparklers?" or "Where can I buy sparklers?"  This lead us to build a website where you can purchase sparklers for any event - a wedding, graduation, birthday, New Year's, Diwali, or just for some backyard fun.  We offer many different types and lengths of sparklers for you to choose from, as well as other products that can be shipped straight to your door.

Welcome to Spirit of '76, where we have been helping customers satisfy their sparkler and other fireworks needs for more than 20 years. Founded in 1987, Spirit of '76 has grown from a small retail operation in Columbia, MO, to one of the premier consumer fireworks wholesalers in the United States.

Come visit our new retail store in Columbia, MO where customers can buy fireworks year-round. 

Founder and President John Bechtold continues to strive each day to provide the safest and highest quality fireworks at the most competitive prices in the industry. We use our volume purchasing power to import fireworks directly from the manufacturer and pass those savings on to our customers.

Spirit of '76 also has a deep commitment to the fireworks industry and is a member of three national fireworks associations, American Pyrotechnics Association, Pyrotechnics Guild International and National Fireworks Association, as well as several state and local organizations.

We ship fireworks throughout the 48 contiguous United States year round. Note that we can only ship select items to certain states due to state laws. You are welcome to pick-up your order at our headquarters in Columbia, Missouri. Click here for directions.
