Every Saturday during the summer, The Butchart Gardens puts on a jaw-dropping, dazzling fireworks show that features both aerial and ground displays, beautifully choreographed to show tunes.

If you are a long-time resident of Vancouver Island, and still haven’t taken in the fireworks show, we highly recommend you do! Our advice, pack a picnic, get there really early, claim your piece of the lawn, then go browse the beautiful gardens.  Just make sure you are back at your spot before 9pm, or sooner if you can. The fireworks don’t start until 9:30/10pm, but as the show nears, it gets harder to re-claim your choice location.

The Butchart Gardens firework shows began in 1977 and continue to be one of The Gardens’ most popular attractions. Repeated each Saturday through the summer, but changing from year to year, the display is well-worth seeing!

Save the dates and make sure to catch the amazing display:
