Nobody loves a party more than Canadians. It’s a big birthday (150 years to be exact) and the celebrations will reflect this. It will be a year-long party so make your plans to join in the festivities.
Don’t miss the Canadian Tulip Festival in Ottawa. The sesquicentennial milestones will be celebrated with the Canada 150 tulips. 300,000 of these red and white tulips will pay honour to our country’s birthday. There are over a million tulips planted and ready to burst for the celebrations.
Canada Day on Parliament Hill will be bigger than ever. The all-day festivities include ceremonial events, fireworks, shows and so much more. See people from all over the country come out to celebrate the big day in red and white, covering the hills, sidewalks and parks to show their national pride.
Visit Niagara Falls for parades, a citizenship ceremony, extreme sports demonstrations and street celebrations with art, cars and, of course, birthday cake! Niagara Falls is spectacular any day, think of how much fun it will be for Canada’s big day.
In London, residents and visitors can enjoy special festivities like ‘The Secret Menu’ where restaurants join together to offer up favourite Canadian flavours. A Sesquicentennial Ball, fireworks and many more activities will be taking place throughout the year to honour our 150th.
Canada Place in Vancouver will welcome over 1 million people for the city’s celebrations – the largest gathering outside of the capital. The National Aboriginal Celebration, Celebration de la Francophonie and 3-day Canada Day event are just some of the ways to enjoy our year-long festivities. Vancouver’s International Wine Festival will also feature 75 national wineries and over 100 international wineries in ‘The Wine World Celebrates Canada’ event.
