Canada Day in Whistler is jam-packed with fun activities for everyone. This National Holiday falls on July 1 every year, and Whistler celebrates in style with block parties, concerts, a parade, fireworks and more! What better way to celebrate Canada Day than enjoying the natural beauty of Whistler.
Canada Day Parade - July 1
Dress in a red & white outfit and celebrate with Whistler crowd in a Canadian style. The parade kicks off at Noon and meanders along the Village Stroll, from Olympic Plaza for Mountain Square. The parade theme this year is the Great Canadian Campout, so there are sure to be some silly and wacky costumes! There is also Street Entertainment all throughout the Village Stroll from Noon to 6pm.
Canada Day Concerts - June 30 and July 1 at 8:30pm
The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra will perform classical music at the open concert space at the Olympic Plaza on June 30 and July 1. The music starts at 8:30pm both nights, so bring a blanket or a camping chair for a memorable evening under the stars.
Village Vibe on Canada Day
The village stroll will be full of colors & street entertainment and the best way to absorb it all is to find a spot to sit and watch. Summer patios are a great place to do just that while eating some mouth-watering brekky or brunch. The famous Whistler Farmer's Market is also happening on Candada Day, so be sure to check this out from 11am to 4pm in Blackcomb's Upper Village.
