The Domaine de Saint-Cloud was to welcome Europe greatest firework show this year again. But the coronavirus epidemic has had the Grand Feu de Saint-Cloud cancelled. This wonderful show expected by all pyrotechnic show enthusiasts was unfortunately cancelled in 2019, due to lack of money.

The Great Fireworks (Grand Feu d’Artifice) of Saint-Cloud won't be back  in Ile de France in 2020. Indeed, considered as an institution, this extraordinary fireworks show mixing the most innovating technics in the majestic setting of the Domaine National de Saint-Cloud won't be performed this year because of the coronavirus epidemic. Fans of this incredible event will have to be patient.

Last year, the organizers also had to renounce to sustaining the Great Fireworks of Saint Cloud due to lack of money. This major light and sound show unfortunately didn't manage to reach financial equilibrium and organizers were forced to cancell the edition. But it has been replaced by another show, the Pleins feu de Saint Cloud. So far, no alternative has been announced for 2020.

For the record, this is what the Great Fireworks of Saint-Cloud used to be:

In the garden created by Le Nôtre, modern fireworks will make you live out – in the 21st century – the “superb springing crystal theater” that was displayed to the Orléans Duke. On this occasion, the park lawn will be full of chairs and bleachers that can accommodate up to 23,000 enthusiasts for who the fireworks show is not limited to Bastille Day. In front of the great and beautiful waterfall, come and attend a unique experience: Europe greatest fireworks show!

For almost two hours, the sky is lighted up with thousands of lights that reveal many scenes. Along with music thoroughly selected mixing classical music and famous soundtracks, about thirty scenes follow one another about the story of the Château de Saint Cloud.

And last year, to celebrate the 10th edition of Europe greatest fireworks, the second part of the show performed the best scenes of the Great Fireworks. 

For the record, the Great Fireworks of Saint-Cloud are:

  • 4,5000 orders to fire and 60,000 projectiles
  • 30 unique scenes mainly accompanied by music
  • 115 minutes of show
  • 93 decibels (think about bringing hearing protections for children)
  • 120 technicians including 65 pyrotechnists working for 10 days
