Canada Day (yes, July 1st) has always been a very special day full of celebrations for Canadians coast to coast. This year, being our Nation’s 150th birthday, we can expect no shortage of that true north pride and enthusiasm.
For many, the cottage has become a Canadian staple when it comes to long weekends, especially the Canada Day weekend. However, for those of you (myself included) who decide not to frequent the cottage on this special weekend, you’ll be glad that you decided to stick around and live the city lifestyle because there are a TON of great events happening.
From live music and history tours to art showcases and mesmerizing fireworks that light up the night’s sky, here are 15 Canada Day events that you, your family, and your friends need to attend:
