Canada Day is the most important holiday all over the country. In Vancouver, you will find some of the largest celebrations, including colorful parades, live music concerts, and picnics and barbeques.
Official celebrations are usually held in the Canada Place exhibition center. Here you can check out lumberjack shows, mechanical bucking broncos, bouncy castles, and free outdoor concerts and amazing evening fireworks. Thousands of people visit this place during the day, so don't miss out on the fun.
The large and colorful Canada Day Parade takes place in the evening through downtown Vancouver. This is definitely one of the best places to visit on the 1st of July. North and West Vancouver also have lots of festivities for everyone. Come and enjoy them all.
Fireworks show (canceled in 2022)
In the evening, an unforgettable pyrotechnic show takes place. The sky lights up by means of two fireworks barges, which are located in Coal Harbour and Dundarave. Best viewing locations include Coal Harbour, Harbour Green Park, Crab Park, Stanley Park, and, of course, Skyllen Pacific Fireworks Viewing Zone at Canada Place. Keep in mind that fireworks are not viewable from Kitsilano, Spanish Banks, or English Bay.
