Celebrate Canada Day and it’s 151 years with everything from traditional parades and fireworks, to cultural performances and cozy barbecues with friends. Whatever your celebration style is, on Saturday, July 1st, we’ve got you covered with a guide to the best places you need to check out!
Arguably Vancouver’s largest — and busiest — Canada Day celebration is held right down in Coal Harbour at Canada Place. Live performances (the likes of Sam Roberts Band serenaded crowds in 2017, while JoJo Mason headlines this year), the Citizenship Ceremony, youth zone, evening fireworks show and food trucks are just some of the activities you can expect. Visit CanadaPlace.ca for full details.
Steveston Village, is located in Richmond, a beautiful trek via SkyTrain and bus from Downtown Vancouver. Steveston’s self-appointed “Canada’s Biggest Little Birthday Party Since 1945” is a full day event. The day starts with a 6:30 am pancake breakfast, followed by the parade along Moncton St. There is something for everyone at the Steveston Canada Day Celebration: Japanese Cultural Fair, Food Fair, Car Show, Children’s Festival, Artisan Gallery, and of course, the notorious salmon barbecue where over 1,200 pounds of grilled wild salmon will be served up.
Like most of us, as soon as summer’s near, we begin to have feelings of wanderlust! Within a two hour drive from Downtown Vancouver, along the beautiful Sea To Sky highway, you’ll be immersed in Canada Day celebrations located in central Whistler. The morning parade is followed by a full day of special activities and free, outdoor performances by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, with spectacular mountain backdrops. Check the full schedule of activities and locations here.
