The contestants with their marvellous firework shows gather at Han River for the bi-annual world-class competition. These artistic shows are the best in the field, and the competition is so strong that there are simply no bad shows. The competitors range from countries throughout the world and each has a twenty-minute limit to show their best. So come in advance and choose the best spot to witness this remarkable spectacle in the beautiful surroundings of the Han river and Da Nang city.
Founded in 2008, the Da Nang International Fireworks Competition became a bi-annual event in 2011, 2013, 2015, and 2017, and is dedicated to the Vietnam National Reunification Holiday. However, it was decided to hold the festival as an annual event starting in 2018. Each performance is the result of a lot of work performed with sounds so these colorful firework displays are indeed works of art. The location of Vietnam’s ‘Bridge City’ suits this festival perfectly. Fireworks are launched from a floating stage, with attractive buildings on the background. It's possible to buy tickets to see the action from the main stage. Taking place on Tran Hung Dao, on the Eastern side of the Han River, it also offers plenty of music, food and other entertainment for festivalgoers.
The pyrotechnic shows take place between late April and June, the season and dates may vary, so you're encouraged to double-check the dates while planning your visit.
