We knew the world’s largest fireworks festival was coming back to Montreal this summer — but now, we know when.

La Ronde has announced the dates for the 36th edition of the International Fireworks Competition, known officially as L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, which will take place on select Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout June and July.

“L’International des Feux Loto-Québec attracts over three million people annually, making it one of Quebec’s most highly attended events,” says La Ronde park president Janine Durette. “La Ronde is honoured to be the host site for this long-standing tradition beloved by Montrealers and tourists alike.”

Though the specific themes have yet to be announced, a variety of countries will be represented by some of the greatest pyrotechnic artists from around the world.

La Ronde notes that all fireworks tickets give you access to the amusement park on the same day, because riding The Goliath and then watching fireworks is a dandy way to spend a summer’s day.

Montrealers already know that some of best places to watch the summertime festival is on the grass, or the bridge, for free (but don’t tell La Ronde).

The 2020 dates for Montreal’s International Fireworks Competition are as follows:

  • Saturday, June 20 – Opening Show
  • Saturday, June 27
  • Saturday, July 4
  • Saturday, July 11
  • Wednesday, July 15
  • Saturday, July 18
  • Wednesday, July 22
  • Wednesday, July 29
