Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light

August 7 - 21, 2021 (Check schedule)

Follow Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light

Note: Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2021, this event is more intimate and physically distanced than usual. Fireworks are being held 10 nights over 2 weeks (instead of the usual 6 nights of fireworks over three weeks) and launched from land (instead of the Ottawa River). This allows a larger number of ticketed attendees to enjoy a more compact Sound of Light experience on the grounds of the Canadian Museum of History. It also means that the show will not be visible to the public outside the viewing area. Visit the event's website for tickets and current details. See below for information on regular programming.


Each summer, be dazzled by spectacular fireworks displays exploding in shimmering waterfalls and blooms of colour high above the Ottawa River, all set to thrilling musical scores.

On Wednesday and Saturday evenings during the first three weeks of August, the fireworks are launched from a platform in the Ottawa River, directly below the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau. For the best pyromusical experience, get tickets to one of the official events held at the museum, which range from simple outdoor access to gourmet evenings.

You could also consider alternative viewing locations across the river in downtown Ottawa. Then sit back and enjoy pyrotechnic displays created by international designers, all vying for top spot in the Casino Lac-Leamy Sound of Light fireworks competition.
