Canada Day 2023 Activities

Canada Day is a national holiday in Canada celebrated on July 1st each year. It commemorates the anniversary of the enactment of the Constitution Act, 1867, which united the separate colonies of Canada. Canada Day is a day of national pride and a time for us to celebrate our country's history, culture, and achievements.

Canada Day is not only a celebration of the country's past but also a reflection of its diversity and multiculturalism. Festivals and cultural events highlight the rich heritage and traditions of Canada's Indigenous peoples, as well as the contributions of various immigrant communities that have helped shape the nation.

As a statutory holiday, Canada Day provides us with an opportunity to spend time with family and friends, take part in community events, and express our gratitude for the freedoms, values, and privileges we enjoy as citizens of Canada. There are tons of events happening around Calgary AB tomorrow on Canada, so be sure to check them out!

The City of Calgary is hosting an official Canada Day celebration down at St. Patrick's Island and East Village. They write, "On July 1, Calgarians and visitors will gather downtown to celebrate Canada Day. This year’s free and family-friendly celebration features an Indigenous showcase and powwow, live music, and will end with a fireworks show above Stampede Park. Other attractions throughout the day include cultural performances, face painting, turban tying, lion dances, a street fair and more."

You can also find Canada Day events at Studio Bell with free admissions to check out Canada's incredible musical history, the Central Library for a showcase of Canadian storytellers and writers, Heritage Park to learn about our history and see 50 new Canadians get their citizenship, Bownessfest in the historic community of Bowness for a true home-grown Canada Day experience, and so much more.
