Bringing the Canada Day festival to you

Join us on July 1 for virtual activities and a one-time viewing concert series!

Residents from the Edmonton Metropolitan Region are invited to join the virtual Regional Canada Day Celebration on July 1, 2020, presented through Facebook. Celebrations this year came together through the collaborative efforts of eight municipalities, including the City of Beaumont, Town of Devon, City of Fort Saskatchewan, City of Leduc, City of Spruce Grove, City of St. Albert, Town of Stony Plain and Strathcona County. Join or like the Facebook event at canadaday.online/celebratetogether, Regional Canada Day Celebration, to find out all the details for the day!

Festivities include a free one-time viewing online concert series between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., with performances from George Canyon, Dan Davidson, Nuela Charles, River Poets and Kym Simon. Additional celebrations include a digital regional booklet filled with fun Canadian themed activities to fill your day. The booklet contains a variety of Canada Day workshops, activities, crafts, colouring pages, fitness classes, recipes and more. Residents will be able to download the brochure in advance to plan their Canada Day starting today!

“We are pleased to be a part of this collaborative regional event,” says Mayor Rod Frank. “Canada Day celebrations look very different this year from past years, but it’s great to still be able to find safe ways to celebrate our great country.”

In addition to the regional activity booklet and concert series, Strathcona County is also putting together and highlighting fun activities for the community including promoting disc golf at the Strathcona Wilderness Centre from June 24 to July 1, a drive-through food truck event on Saturday, June 27, juggling and hula hoop lessons with Firefly theatre on June 29, a dance party with the Stilettos on July 1, golf specials at Broadmoor Public Golf Course on July 1 and more!
