This year’s celebrations are extra special because it is the first time to celebrate face-to-face after the pandemic. The annual celebrations, new events, and a focus on celebrating the many cultures that makes up Canada’s beautiful, intricate fabric are back and, once again, can be enjoyed physically and not just in our homes!
Here are some of the celebrations from the Family Fun Canada’s ultimate guide!
Canada Day 2022 at Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21
The Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21 is Canada’s sixth national museum. Its mission is to share the ongoing story of immigration to Canada—past to present and coast to coast to coast. This year, the Canadian Museum of Immigration invites you to take the opportunity to consider the past and its effect on the present, to join in a celebration of the present commitment to multiculturalism, and to imagine a future of security and happiness for all those calling Canada home. Enjoy the celebration on July 1st at 10:00 am with FREE access to the Museum; Musical performances by artists like Jah’Mila and The Big Sing; chalk artists; photo booths and more! The museum is located at Canadian Museum of Immigration at Pier 21, 1055 Marginal Road, Halifax.

Tattoo Canada Day Parade
Head to Downtown Halifax this July 1 and Celebrate Canada Day in style with the Tattoo! This is a two-and-a-half-hour show features the best of the best pipes, drums, bands, dancers, singers, choirs, acrobats, military pomp and historical displays anywhere in Atlantic Canada. The Tattoo started with a drumbeat and the skirl of the pipes on June 28, 1979. First held to celebrate the International Gathering of the Clans (and opened by The Queen Mother) the Tattoo quickly became a beloved event on the summer calendar and has evolved into a week-long spectacle proudly supported by the Canadian Armed Forces, the Government of Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, the City of Halifax, Sobeys, and many corporate partners. This year, they are hosting the biggest Canada Day Parade east of Montreal in downtown Halifax and they want you to join them there.
Canada Day Family Fun Fest
Bring your whole family in the afternoon at the Dartmouth Ferry Terminal Park this July 1st at 1:00 pm and celebrate Canada Day by filling your afternoon with entertainment! You can also get a chance to witness a World Record Breaking event for the most people drumming simultaneously!
