The Honda Celebration of Light will illuminate the sky over English Bay on July 20, 24, and 27 – and the world’s longest-running offshore fireworks competition will feature pyrotechnics teams from Portugal, Malaysia, and the United Kingdom.

At 10:00pm each night the fireworks will begin from barges located in English Bay. Music simulcasts can be heard on CFMI Rock 101.

The event welcomes back the Red Bull Air Show, a spectacular pre-show performance happening on all three festival nights at 7:40pm.

This year the Honda Celebration of Light is excited to announce the premiere of an electric drone show. Each night at approximately 9:50pm, attendees can watch a dazzling, choreographed drone display light up the skies over English Bay. 

“The annual Honda Celebration of Light is more than just a fireworks display – it’s a tradition that has illuminated Vancouver’s skies for decades,” says Mayor Ken Sim.

“We are thrilled to welcome spectators from around the globe for this vibrant celebration of art, culture, and community. To ensure this event remains an enjoyable and safe experience for everyone, we will be working closely with our partners at the Park Board, Vancouver Police Department and Emergency Services.”
