Celebrate Canada’s birthday at Broadmoor Lake Park

Everyone is welcome to join the festivities at Broadmoor Lake Park as we celebrate Canada’s birthday. Canada Day is Strathcona County’s biggest festival, with indoor and outdoor activities for all ages.

The festival will kick off at 9 a.m. with the annual pancake breakfast and stage show in the Community Centre (located at 401 Festival Lane, Sherwood Park). At 10 a.m., the Chamber of Commerce Parade will wind its way around the heart of the community. The day of fun will conclude with the popular Sobeys Lakeland and Nottingham fireworks display at 11 p.m.

While the majority of activities are free, some do require tickets or the Unlimited Access Wristband. Wristbands are on sale now for $5 at the Sherwood Park Mall and at most Strathcona County recreation facilities. On July 1, tickets can also be purchased on site for $1 per activity.

The RCMP and Enforcement Services will have extra staff on site to promote a safe, family fun event. There will be zero tolerance for public consumption of liquor and illegal drugs, including cannabis.

This year’s festival is full of fun and exciting activities, including:

  • Juno nominated country artist Julian Austin will headline on the Imperial Stage at 9:30 p.m.
  • Mammoet Just Play area featuring different play zones
  • Prairie Toyota FunZone, which includes 17 inflatables and many activities for kids
  • RE/MAX Elite field activities including carnival games and a circus workshop
  • A human foosball game and igloo activity with Coke floats
  • A giant memory backyard game
  • Canoe rides and more.

Guests are invited to use the FREE Transit express shuttle that runs every 15 minutes from the Bethel Transit Terminal (650 Bethel Drive, Sherwood Park) to the front of Festival Place in Broadmoor Lake Park.

Festival attendees are also encouraged to share thoughts about the Canada Day event by using the hashtag #mycanadafest on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
