The 20th International Firework Festival and Competition in Brno takes place on the surface of the large lake at Brno Dam in the month of June 2017. Visitors to Brno's recreation area will get to see a festival of in-competition pyrotechnical performances accompanied by music that is unique in the Central European region. World-famous pyrotechnical designers will create thousands of colourful images in the skies above the surface of the lake, set to the tones of exciting music, and provide viewers with extraordinary and emotive experiences. The wonderful natural amphitheatre around Brno Dam will provide tens of thousands of viewers with pleasant settings for the fireworks shows. A programme of entertainment with a wide range of refreshments, particularly on fireworks days, is sure to attract visitors in the afternoon hours and make for an enjoyable time in the run-up to the firework shows themselves. A tribune with sound equipment and a direct view of the firework launch site is to be erected in Rakovec Bay for the convenience of viewers and true enthusiasts of world pyrotechnical spectacles.
The twentieth jubilee STAROBRNO IGNIS BRUNENSIS international firework festival is also to feature two firework shows above the historic Špilberk Castle in the centre of Brno - an opening invitational PRELUDE before the in-competition firework performances and a festive EPILOGUE to bring this year's twentieth firework festival and entertainments in the Moravian metropolis Brno - City in the Centre of Europe - to a close.
