Canada Day 2022 – new official sites

Parliament Hill has been the official Canada Day site for over 50 years. This year, the Centre Block Rehabilitation project means the Canada Day main stage is moving to a new location just 1.5 kilometre (less than one mile) to the west.

Canadian Heritage is pleased to announce two new sites: LeBreton Flats Park and Place des festivals Zibi. The iconic Parliament Hill will still feature some activities.

Full programming announcement coming soon. For a glimpse of previous years’ official Canada Day programming 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)!
