Hanabi in Japan is a predominately summer activity. If you are in summer in Japan you can check out webpages such as:
https://hanabi.walkerplus.com/

Here you can filter for region and day. I am not sure if it contains ALLhanabi but if you go to more rural areas you will see the smaller ones. An other option obviously is if your region is already decided, that you just ask locals or look for the local advertisement. In Japanese cities there are normally information boards and the publicity for your local Matsuri or fireworks ԉ are normally easily spotable because they use images.

Enjoy Japanese fireworks!

What do you mean by "participating"?

Typically, firework festivals are something that anyone is free to "watch". There is no real participation there. You just sit, maybe have a picnic, and watch fireworks for a couple of hours. These festivals are held at almost any "shi" (town with population of more than 50,000 people). The closer you get to the fireworks the busier the crowd and traffic. If you go further from the fireworks, you can enjoy a very low key atmosphere even in the middle of Tokyo.

If you happen to be talking about people holding sparklets and lighting them by themselves, that's not really a "festival". Anyone is free to buy a pack of sparklets, gather with friends or family, and enjoy them at a local park or home.

In any case, fireworks/sparklets are a summer treat in Japan. For teenagers, it's a good and healthy excuse to ask a girl/boy literally out at night and maybe dress up in yukata.
