There will be cultural pavillions on hand to showcase the rich diversity on display through crafts, activities, and a night market, all leading up to the main event of each night.

This year’s shows will feature Ukraine, Spain, Philippines, and China, and then the finale will light up the night on August 25.

Each night’s fireworks will be best viewed from Elliston Park, which is where all the cultural pavilions, performance stages, and seating will be set up. Tickets for the party are available at GlobalFest’s website starting at $20 per person.
