Calgary Activities Global Fest

Global Fest: Not Just Your Average Firework Show

Calgary Activities GlobalFestFireworks are enjoyed by all, and I admit they are one of my favourite things to watch. From the big booming sounds, crackles and lighting up the sky, Global Fest is one event you do not want to miss out on!

Global Fest runs August 19th until August 27th 

Hosted annually in Eliston Park, at the end of International Avenue (17th Avenue SE), with gates opening at 6pm with food, drinks and entertainment this International Firework Competition will excite all the senses

Worried that you cant contain the little ones and make them sit for hours while you wait for the firework show to start? No worries! There are four parks in Eliston Park and a Kiddies Koral.

Its not always convenient to bring our own food to festivals with having to lug more stuff around Im not always a huge fan. Global Fest offers food concessions as well as The One World International Food and Bar Café will be dishing up deliciousness from around the world!

Keep in mind that this is an outdoor event and to dress accordingly, I suggest bringing a chair along with you and some blankets. There is no parking at Eliston Park (View alternative parking  arrangements here), so make sure to pack lightly as you may have to truck around from your car to the site.

I hope you enjoy your time at Global Fest and please share what you are most excited about!
