Join the hundreds of thousands of fans as they take their spot down at English Bay for the 27th anniversary of Vancouver’s spectacular fireworks competition!

Honda Celebration of Light 2017

  • Saturday, July 29: Japan (Akariya Firework team)
  • Wednesday, August 2: UK (Jubilee Fireworks team)
  • Saturday, August 5: Canada (Royal Pyrotechnic team)

The fireworks will begin at 10:00 pm each night – rain or shine.

Here are some helpful tips:

If the weather calls for rain, it’s recommended to bring a hooded rain jacket with you. Leave the umbrellas at home, as they impede the view for other guests.

It’s recommended to walk, bike or take public transportation to English Bay, as there will be major road closures from 7:30 pm until 11:00 pm.
