OUR HISTORY

CREATING A FESTIVAL TO MATCH THE FIREWORKS

 

Originally named the “Symphony of Fire”, the Honda Celebration of Light has come a long way since 1990. Recognized as the longest running off-shore fireworks festival in the world, we have hosted dozens of countries to compete each year in a spectacular fireworks display.

 

In 2022, the Honda Celebration of Light will be roaring back to life to celebrate its 30th anniversary to bring our communities back together over three spectacular days and nights.

 

 OUR PURPOSE

UNITING COMMUNITIES FOR OVER 30 YEARS

 

Our event’s core purpose is to spark togetherness in a celebration of community, music, food and fireworks.  As BC’s largest live event, we’re proud to create an atmosphere of celebration, inclusion, and belonging that supports and creates opportunities for BC-based businesses and emerging artists.

 

We believe in sparking wonder & pride in our community through the creation of free, engaging spaces for the public to gather. Whether you have a longstanding tradition or are new to the merriment, each year the festival offers a chance to connect and make memories that last a lifetime.

 

We value creating inclusive spaces for friends and families to take part in the celebration. From the diversity of our participating fireworks teams and countries to accessible viewing areas and free programming for the public to enjoy; we work with municipal authorities to continually develop public safety and crowd management plans that create safe spaces for 1.4 million attendees to enjoy.
