Squamish Canada Day… time to put on your red and white and get involved with everything Squamish has to offer! Happy Birthday Canada!
Canada Day celebrations return to Downtown Squamish on Sunday, July 1st 2018. Festivities will be held in Junction Park along with a People Powered Procession starting at Winnipeg and Cleveland at 10:00am.
It’s a jam-packed day of activities including live music, a vendor aisle, kids zone, food trucks, classic car show, free birthday cake and a flourishing beer garden. This is an event not to miss! All events are family friendly and free of charge. The vendor aisle is, full of local artisans, local food trucks, and local entertainment from 11am to 10 pm. We even have our local Squamish-based Howe Sound Brew at the beer garden, which opens at 11:30am. All nestled in Squamish’s beautiful Junction Park.
Canada Day will kick off with a People Powered Procession starting at Winnipeg Street and Cleveland with a 10am sharp start. Want to be a part of the fun? Send Anne an email at [email protected]. It’s a great opportunity for community groups and local businesses to promote themselves within the community.
The parade will lead into the Squamish Cenotaph where we will raise the flag with our Local Legion, First Nations and Mayor. Followed by our Canadian Cake Cutting Ceremony sponsored by Save On Foods.
Canada Day will have an all-star line up of performers on the U’Siyam Pavilion starting at 11am. Performers include Will Ross, Carolyn Grass and Friends, The Overcomers, The Wells, The Splinters, Squamish Academy of Music, Squamish Dance Centre, Zombie Roof, Bluesberry Jam Showband, The Jocelyn Pettit Band and Howe Sound Dance Academy.
New to the festivities this year is the Canada Day classic car show-taking place in front of August Jack Motel. Come check out some beautiful classic cars on display throughout the day. Thank you Michael Roblin & Dynamic Property Management.
