Things to do this Canada Day long weekend

It’s time to celebrate our progressive country, the first G-20 nation to legalize recreational cannabis!  For that, and MANY other things, we are grateful.

If you live in the Calgary area, here are some things to check out this Canada Day!

East Village

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., East Village will host daytime celebrations, including street vendors, food trucks, live music and cultural dancing and local businesses showcasing unique goods. You can also check out the newly installed Bounce Park, a new multi-use games park (At the former site of the East Village Junction Container Park). It includes a full-sized basketball court, Ping-Pong tables, Snakes and Ladders games and an art mural by artist duo MAUD. Great way to kick-off the day enjoying the city and gorgeous river views!

MaxBell Arena

MarketSpot YYC holds a massive outdoor party on Canada Day, featuring nearly 100 vendors, two live music stages, food trucks, kids’ activities and a Wildrose Brewery beer garden! The event runs from 12 p.m. to 11 p.m.

King Eddy Garden Party

Coldgarden Brewery will host a garden party on the King Eddy Rooftop patio, featuring DJs and their much-loved lineup of craft beers, all set in a garden oasis specifically created for Canada Day. The best part? No cover! The event starts at 2 p.m. and runs until midnight.

Centre Street Bridge Fireworks

No Canada Day is complete without fireworks! You can snag a spot along the river or Crescent Heights and watch the display to cap off the day. Fireworks start at 11 p.m. and run until 11:30 p.m.

The City of Calgary website lists further activities and there is definitely something for everyone! You can view a full list of attractions and celebrations from the City of Calgary here.
