Canada Dayyc planning in full swing

This year’s Canada Day celebrations are a true community event, and The City of Calgary wants all Calgarians to take part. Whether it’s enjoying the music and interactive activities at Prince’s Island Park, tasting flavours from around the world at CALGARY EATS!, experiencing the energy and ambience on the RiverWalk, taking in Calgary’s food trucks while listening to local DJs, or capping off the day by watching the spectacular fireworks show from Centre Street Bridge, there is something for everyone.

Prince’s Island Park will feature music, food and a variety of activities including the Living Flag. Calgarians in red and white t-shirts will recreate the Canadian Flag and pose for a bird’s eye view picture before singing O Canada and kicking off the day’s festivities.

There will be no shortage of entertainment with various stage performances from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. With everything from children’s theatre, acoustic performances, dance routines and up and coming local artists, Canada Dayyc will have an amazing soundtrack.

The sounds of the drum will resonate through the air with a new addition to Canada Dayyc. An exhibition powwow at Olympic Plaza will provide the opportunity to experience aboriginal culture and education through storytelling, crafts for all ages and traditional aboriginal cuisine.

CALGARY EATS! Will transform RiverWalk into the dining room of Calgary for Canada Day. Spend time gathering your favourite fruits, cheeses and baked goods from local vendors to create a nice picnic basket to enjoy by the banks of the river, let the kids get their hands dirty by learning how to plant a garden, or discover ethnic food from Calgary’s great restaurants as you soak in the energy around you.

For all things food trucks Festival Market will be the place to be! The Food Truck RoundUp will have the best eats in the city, along with music provided by local DJs.

New this year, the Riverfront Stage on Riverfront Avenue is the place to sit back and watch the Calgary sky light up with fireworks launched from Centre Street Bridge.
