• The International Fireworks Fest

    JULY 1 TO AUGUST 5 – Launching into the night sky over La Ronde,the annual Loto Quebec L’International des Feux will feature eight pyromusical shows that have all the ingredients to light up the Montreal sky. Over the course of 4 weeks, top pyrotechnical talent from all over the world will compete for top honours. In addition, a special finale theme show will entertain and round out the festival.

    For 2017, L’International des Feux Loto-Québec is preparing a highly entertaining 33rd edition, in honor of the 375th anniversary of Montreal and 50th anniversary of La Ronde.

    On this occasion, Alexandre Despatie, Olympic medalist, world diving champion and television host, will be in the spotlight acting as the International des Feux Loto-Québec spokesperson.

    Special program includes a fireworks opening ceremony that will reflect Montreal spirit. The singer-songwriter Ian Kelly will perform his song named just like the city celebrating its birthday: Montréal.

    There are many great, free vantages to watch the show, among them the field outside the gates to La Ronde, the clock tower at the Quays of the Old Port, the clock tower beach at the Port, and the Lafontaine Bridge. Or, you could enjoy a day at La Ronde and stay late to the fireworks from directly underneath! All shows begin at 10 PM.

    The eight competing firms have chosen original and bold themes for their respective shows, making each performance totally unique.
