GlobalFest is Canada’s most explosive celebration of cultural diversity!
GlobalFest is known for its International Fireworks Festival and One World Festival. The BRZ office is proud to be a co-founder and supporter of the event. Global Fest is Calgary’s very own international fireworks festival. The event offers exciting food opportunities, the beauty of Elliston Park (61 Street and 17 Avenue SE), an international fair, and of course the firework display!
