Saturday Night Fireworks at The Butchart Gardens

July 22, 2017 @ 9:45 pm - 10:45 pm


The Firework shows began in 1977 and continue to be one of The Gardens’ most popular draws. Our show times and dates vary from year to year, so please check below for the detailed schedule. The same show happens each Saturday but changes from year to year. If you’d like to get a sense of what our firework shows are like have a look at postings on YouTube and Flickr.

After the show, we invite you to linger a while to minimize conjestion leaving the parking lots. Take some time following fireworks to enjoy the Night Illuminations throughout The Garden or a half hour live recital from the rare Aeolian Pipe Organ situated in the loft of the Organ Pavilion adjacent to the Concert Lawn.
