GlobalFest’s China and Philippines Performances Rescheduled!

(Calgary, AB, August 21, 2015) – Due to severe rain and weather conditions at Elliston Park, Thursday night’s opening has been postponed.

GlobalFest will now be presenting China’s performance on Saturday, August 22 and Philippines on Sunday, August 23. It is important to know that only China tickets will be accepted on Saturday and Philippines tickets on Sunday.

It is essential for GlobalFest to remain in compliance with government regulations regarding the safe handling of explosive products. Once fireworks are in place, for the safety of the technicians and the audience, etc., fireworks cannot be removed prior to shooting. All this work is done by hand and the potential real risk to life and limb of these technicians necessitates this restriction.

Patron safety being a primary concern, a two day postponement versus the usual GlobalFest one day postponement was decided due to the wet forecast on Friday, August 21.

Tickets are still available at all Calgary Customer Service Offices, Marlborough Mall, all Alberta London Drugs, and online at while supplies last.


The New GlobalFest Schedule is as Follows

Saturday, August 22 – China        

Sunday, August 23 – Philippines

Tuesday, August 25 – Spain

Thursday, August 27 – USA

Saturday, August 29 – Finale (Canada)
