About Us

AFA has been growing and diversifying every year since we opened for business in 2001.

Our crew members bring with them a lot of safety knowledge, performing arts work and years of work with the film industry in Vancouver.

We strive to be hands-on, meeting with clients and future customers to discuss ideas and safety issues, to create a show that is unique to their individual event and fits their budget.


At the start of 2006 we made a major commitment to the quality of shows we can provide to our customers.

We purchased a Digital Firing System to enhance the quality and range of our shows.

We have also purchased 2 confetti air cannons with a recharging system, Recycle Time is under 10 seconds.

Take a look at some of the responses from some of our customers:

"Don took a hands-on approach to each event throughout the year, generated the excitement and awe that we were looking for. Having had the chance to work with Don this year, I would not hesitate to invite him back again in the future. His friendly and enthusiastic demeanor made him an absolute pleasure to work with. I would definitely recommend Don and AFA Fireworks for any type of celebration." (2004, 2005, 2006)

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the representatives from AFA fireworks for providing the Deep Bay community with another fantastic show. This is the third year that we have worked with this group and their shows continue to improve."

"The variety of fireworks is very impressive, the sound, colour and size of the light display was absolutely fantastic. I would both without hesitation recommend and hire this organization again." (July 1, 2004, 2005, 2006)

"The fireworks display was presented to us by AFA Fireworks (Don), who put in countless hours preparing this display for the graduates. We have already approached Don about the possibility of him doing the fireworks again next year for our Grad 2007. He is excited about the opportunity and we are looking forward to seeing what his new ideas will be for next year. If you get the opportunity to work with Don, you will not be disappointed and will enjoy working with the very professional and enthusiastic person." (Grad 2003, 2004, 2006)

"I would like to personally thank you for helping make our beach wedding absolutely unforgettable with your outstanding fireworks display. It was 10 minutes of the greatest fireworks I have ever seen! Not only were our guests impressed but the beach was lined with hundreds of other people on vacation. Reports that we have received were that your fireworks display was far superior to the millennium fireworks in Calgary of 2000. Great work!" (private wedding 2006)

"We'd like to thank you & AFA fireworks for making our special day even better. Having fireworks at our wedding was a dream of ours."

"Thanks for making it happen. You were great fun to work with and very knowledgeable. The confetti cannon was just what Paul wanted and our guests were covered in streamers! The evening display was spectacular and seemed like it went on forever. Our guest were raving about it. In fact, people are still talking about it now. Our day just wouldn't have been the same without the fireworks."

"AFA were incredibly good value for money and the fireworks were FANTASTIC. Thanks again - we definitely got BANG for our BUCK!!" (private wedding 2006)
