GlobalFest is an arts, culture and fireworks festival that celebrates diversity and artistic excellence. Each night of the festival includes the OneWorld Festival at Elliston Park, which includes a citizenship ceremony, tipi village, night market, cultural pavilions, and more. GlobalFest also includes firework displays in the park on each night. The artistic aspect of these displays are adjudicated. This year, in honour of Canada 150, the fireworks competition is by different Canadian provinces rather than countries. The 2017 participants are Western Canada, Prairies, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada. The finale on August 26 comes with live musical accompaniment.
