Canada Day 2024

The Canada Day main stage — where all official Canada Day-related activities will take place — is LeBreton Flats, just 1.5 kilometres west of Parliament Hill. 

Join the celebrations at LeBreton Flats Park and elsewhere in the heart of Ottawa – Gatineau! A number of activities, animations and shows presented by Canadian artists will give you a chance to celebrate throughout the day. Don’t miss the Tim Hortons Canada day fireworks that will light up the sky at night.

Across Canada, you can watch the daytime ceremony and the evening show on the platforms of Canadian broadcasters. All information about the broadcast will follow shortly.

For more information about the programming, visit the Canada Day website.

Join Canadians and visitors dressed in red and white as they take part in the biggest Canada Day party in the country each year on July 1 in Canada’s capital region!

This epic celebration features a variety of free programming at official sites in Ottawa and Gatineau, including interactive activities, appearances by dignitaries and special guests, live performances by top and emerging Canadian musicians, and an impressive fireworks show (weather permitting)!
