The skies of Calgary are going to light up during the annual Globalfest extravaganza! The 2021 Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival’s theme is “Pearls of the Orient.” The annual fireworks festival kicks off at Elliston Park on August 19, 2021, with five nights of fireworks. China will begin the festivities on August 19 and the grand finale of this explosive event will be on August 28, 2021. With international border restrictions still in place, these teams will not be here to build their shows in person. Instead, their pyromusicals will be brought to fruition by local pyrotechnicians while the designers oversee it via video call.

The OneWorld Festival will feature four stages with performances from cultural partners and a delicious selection of international food booths. A new area will be opened up on the south side of the hill, for a new vantage point to enjoy the show, allowing for social distancing throughout the park. For this year only, there will be no Children’s Village, cultural pavilions or community activation spaces. This difficult, but necessary, decision was made to also allow for social distancing in areas that attendees typically meet and mingle.
