GlobalFest OneWorld Festival

Elliston Park opens every night of GlobalFest at 6:00 pm, so come early and take in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes that the OneWorld Festival has to offer! Pavilions from some of Calgary's cultural communities will be showcasing their heritage dress, cultural music, incredible performances, and interactive activities for all. Or take a stroll through the Night Market, featuring vendors with authentic handcrafted arts and keepsakes. 

The OneWorld Festival plays host to a number of activities on-site (subject to change): 

Citizenship Ceremony
Cultural Mosaic Performance 
Night Market
Performance Stages, including the TD Main Stage andBoardwalk Stage
OneWorld Village (Cultural Pavilions)
Ethnic Food Booths

Trico Homes International Fireworks Festival

Each night of the festival, the adjudicators look for several things:

1.   The quality of the display
2.   The scope of the work
3.   The brilliance and richness of colours used
4.   Synchronization: the precision of the marriage between music, sound effects, and fireworks
5.   Originality of the artistic concept: the choice of music and staging
6.   That 25% of the music used is native to the presenting country

These artistic requirements result in 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 festival – the reflections in the water add a fluid, shimmering mirror of the events taking place above. The designers hope that the audience will lose themselves in the colours and rhythms of the display, while being mesmerized by the cadence of the explosions and the glittering forms.

2018 Fireworks Festival Dates:


Thursday, August 16      Ukraine
Saturday, August 18       Spain
Tuesday, August 21        Philippines
Thursday, August 23      China
Saturday, August 25       Finale (Canada)
