CanadaDay_All43This award winning event, presented by the Port of Vancouver, is the largest Canada Day celebration outside our nation’s capital and we are celebrating for two days this year to commemorate 150 years of Confederation!

Canada Day at Canada Place has been Vancouver’s premier event for 30 years, bringing communities together to share our special bond of living in one of the greatest countries in the world and celebrating our freedom, values and diversity. With the popular daytime festival, the parade through downtown Vancouver and the simultaneous two barge fireworks spectacular, Canada Day at Canada Place is the best way to celebrate our nation’s birthday!
