GlobalFest – Calgary Fireworks Festival

August 20 @ 5:00 pm - August 29 @ 10:30 pm

GlobalFest Fireworks Festival

GlobalFest Calgary is a cultural extravaganza showing Calgary’s cultural diversity plus a Fireworks Festival. Globalfest 2020 happens Aug 20-29 at Elliston Park in East Calgary. The schedule for the fireworks is:

August 20 – China,  August 22 – India,  August 25 – Japan,  August 27 – Philippines,  Aug 29 – Finale. 

Also, at GlobalFest two performance stages where some of the different cultural associations perform ethnic dances and more!

The Cultural Pavilions make Global Fest what it is, learn about different cultures with the more than 30+ countries represented!

Elliston Park is open from  6:00 pm – 11:30 pm (Main gate at the corner of 17th International Avenue and 60th Street SE)  Please note: there is no entry after 9:15 pm.

-Each night of the GlobalFest, adjudicators look for several things:

The quality of the display
Originality of the artistic concept: the choice of music and staging
Brilliance and richness of colours used
25% of the music used is native to the presenting country
Synchronization: the precision of the marriage between music, sound effects, and fireworks

The scope of the work

The result of these artistic requirements are presentations that cannot be seen anywhere else in the world, making each night of the Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival a world premiere presentation.

The lake at Elliston Park adds a special dimension to the Globalfest Calgary Festival- International Fireworks Festival – the reflections in the water add a fluid, shimmering mirror of the show taking place above. It is the designer’s hope that the audience will lose themselves in the colours and rhythms of the display, while simultaneously being mesmerized by the cadence of the explosions and glittering forms.

“GlobalFest is a not-for-profit society dedicated to celebrating and showcasing Calgary’s cultural diversity and artistic excellence within our communities locally and across the globe. We are committed to producing an inclusive, world-class, multi-faceted arts and cultural festival that will enhance Alberta’s reputation as a truly international destination.”
