Virtual Canada Day Celebrations

Join in for Halifax’s first virtual Canada Day celebrations on Wednesday, July 1, 2020!

Halifax was selected by Canadian Heritage and CBC to take part in a national virtual Canada Day celebration, and will be featured as part of the Ottawa national coverage – showcasing our people, city, and community.

This year marks the 153rd anniversary of the founding of Canada and with physical distancing measures and gathering limitations remaining in place, the Halifax Regional Municipality will be hosting celebrations with contests, music performances, and activities for the whole family.

Whether you tune in from the living room or with your smartphones by the backyard bonfire, tune in for performances from some some of the most talented Canadian artists showcasing incredible Canadian stories and music.



How to Tune In

→ Performances for the Halifax and Dartmouth Canada Day celebrations will begin at 7 pm on the Halifax Regional Municipality’s Youtube page and the HFX Civic Events Facebook page.
