Oh Canada! The Ultimate Canada Day Event Guide


Canada Day. A time to celebrate and show our pride for our great nation, its remarkable history and its bright future. From the rolling Rockies, to the majestic prairies, breathtaking coastal lines, metropolitan cities and stunning northern territories. Let’s be honest, we have a lot to be proud about.

Banff will be celebrating our national day with pride and vigor (as usual) and there is always an amazing atmosphere in town. Plus, entry into Banff National Park is FREE on July 1st!

Must have items for a perfect day:
Sun cream or umbrellas – whatever the weather decides, events will go ahead.
Lawn chairs, blankets – set up for the day!
Cash – no card transactions on any stalls
Maple Leaf attire – hats, flags, face paint. Anything and everything goes!
