Canada Day

Canada Day Page Header
It’s time to party and celebrate Canada’s Birthday! Memorial Peace Park will be filled with diverse entertainment, games, activities, and tasty food from different cultures.

Catch headliners The Matinee, Odds and Taylor James rocking on the Main Stage and some of our very talented local performers and a multicultural fashion show on the Community Star Stage. The Family Stage will focus on entertainment for the young – or just the young at heart! The celebration includes the Farmers Market, an artisan market, a water spray and play area, food trucks, pony rides, roving entertainers, games, a community BBQ and more. There’s something for everyone to enjoy. As the day wraps up it will be all eyes to the sky to watch the flyover finale and to sing Happy Birthday.
