Canada Day

Due to COVID-19, Canada Day 2020 celebrations will be hosted virtually (see our Canada Day 2020: A virtual celebration article for details). We hope to see you in Canada's capital on July 1st in 2021 and in years to come! 

For a glimpse of what the usual official Canada Day programming is like in Ottawa, see below.

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 live entertainment, family activities and spectacular fireworks—all free!

Join the crowds of Canadians and visitors dressed in red and white as they celebrate on downtown Ottawa streets that are closed to traffic for the occasion. A variety of programming is offered at official sites in both downtown Ottawa and Gatineau, including interactive activities, appearances by dignitaries and special guests, live performances by top and emerging Canadian musicians, and an incredible fireworks show (weather permitting)!
