Celebrate a World of Difference at GlobalFest - Alberta’s can’t-miss summer festival experience. Every year, thousands of people gather to celebrate the multicultural city of Calgary through song, dance, food, and five nights of mind-blowing firework displays. Come down and check out this amazing event that keeps getting better every year.
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. This year performances will include Austria, Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
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.
