Celebrate Canada Day: What's On Around Town

Stop in for BIG savings at Apple Box Boutique between Noon and 5:00 PM, then take in the fun and fabulous Canada Day events happening all around town... 
Happy Canada Day everyone!

If you are a first-time visitor or a long-time resident, there are activities for everyone to enjoy this Canada Day. From arts and culture to sports and the outdoors, Canada’s Festival City will provide residents and visitors alike with the ultimate Canada Day experience.

The Alberta Aviation Museum will be open with visiting aircraft on display, the Vintage Wings of Canada member rides and for the Children, the local Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) will be holding a Free (other than museum admission) Young Eagles day where children between 8 and 16 years will get a flight in a light aircraft, courtesy of the EAA.

Celebrate Canada Day in one of the prettiest settings around, at the Devonian Botanic Garden. Outdoor art displays in the Main Garden, musical entertainment, crafts and games for the kids, Canada Day cake! All activities are free with regular admission.

Grab your bandana and bring the kids to an eco-tourism adventure and on-farm festival complete with Canada Day fun, farm tours, a wild west ghost town, wagon rides, gem mining & more! The Canada Day Kids Fest at Prairie Gardens & Adventure Farm is the perfect way to kick-start summer holidays on the Canada Day long weekend.

Enjoy great food, entertainment, and live performances by Alberta based artists at one of Alberta’s top Canada Day destinations, the Alberta Legislature.  Geared for all ages, the performances will take place from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. across three stages. New this year is a special children’s only area with its own stage. Beat the heat with a splash in the wading pools or by touring the Legislature Building during the annual Open House.

The annual Silly Summer Parade mixes Canada Day spirit with twisted humour and good old-fashioned fun. This fun filled afternoon features family activities, entertainment, a fundraising Bar-B-Que and of course Canada Day cake. 

There is plenty to take in at the various City attractions too!  Celebrate Canada Day and the Edmonton Valley Zoo’s 52nd birthday!  Enjoy lively jazz with Six Feet Up, Canada crafts, planting activities, face painting and lots of family fun at the Muttart Conservatory.  Join the park-wide celebration of Dominion Day with a great variety show at Fort Edmonton Park.  Enjoy the live entertainment, crafts, face painting and petting zoo at City Hall and don't forget the fireworks!  This year’s display is going to be bigger and better than ever before as Edmonton will be launching the biggest fireworks shell in Canada - don’t miss it!
