What is GlobalFest and why is it a big deal?
What does the event involve?
What are the fireworks like?
You don’t get dubbed, “the most explosive festival in Alberta” without putting on a one-of-a-kind firework show. Each night of GlobalFest features a unique performance by world-class pyro-musical artists from around the globe. On August 18, 2022, Best of Festival Champion India opens the festival with a new firework show to defend their title against challengers Austria (making their debut appearance at the International Fireworks Festival), Germany - back for the first time since 2010 - and France, returning for the first time since 2014.
For the best view of the fireworks, snag a spot in the south bowl overlooking the lake, set up some lawn chairs or blankets, and get comfortable as you gaze up at dazzling displays of light across the night sky - and reflected in the still water below. Every team creates a show tailored for the Elliston Park location to ensure you are experiencing a unique event.
