What is GlobalFest and why is it a big deal?
What does the event involve?
What are the fireworks like?
You don’t get a name like, “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 world. On August 16, Ukraine makes its GlobalFest debut with a must-see performance. Spain (August 18), Philippines (August 21), and China (August 23) follow with a special Canadian grand finale on August 25.
For the best view of the fireworks, snag a spot on the hill and set up some lawn chairs and blankets so you will be comfortable as you gaze up at dazzling displays of light spread across the night sky. Every year features new teams to ensure you are always seeing something that will take your breath away.
