Victoria Celebrates Canada Day is excited to announce a great line-up of family-friendly events, main stage performances, the return of A Flavour of Canada, and our annual Fireworks display over the Inner Harbour, all set to take place on July 1st, 2015!
Once again we’re committed to our ongoing green initiative, so expect to see the Canada Day Team Green out in full force keeping our beautiful Inner Harbour clean. Also returning this year, the free bike valet service offers a safe place to lock up bikes for all who wish to leave their cars at home.
Highlights for this year’s celebrations include…
Victoria Celebrates Canada Day’s headliner, the energetic, multicultural and always-entertaining Delhi 2 Dublin!
As part of our annual partnership with the BC Government Francophone Affairs Program, Quebecois electronic pop band Monogrenade joins this year’s lineup on the Canada Day main stage. French programming is made possible thanks to the support of the Canada-British Columbia Official Languages Agreement on French-Language Services.
Other performances feature a strong mix of local and multicultural acts. These include, Vancouver’s soul, funk boys The Boom Booms, presented in partnership with Victoria’s Ska and Reggae Festival; Vancouver-based “Fairy-Folk” musician, Jordan Klassen; Juno award-winning children’s performer, Helen Austin; Victoria-native Mike Edel; island favourites, Carmanah; The Taiko Drummers, and more!
The Victoria Celebrates Canada Day fireworks are set to take place July 1st at 10:20pm. Tune in to our media partners at The Zone @ 91.3 or 100.3 The Q! for a live feed with accompanying music – but we’re getting ahead of ourselves…
A Flavour of Canada will be up at the intersection of Belleville and Government Streets again, because we liked it closer to the Legislature Lawns!
And not to worry, the Coast Capital Living Flag will be back on the BC Legislature Lawns early in the afternoon of July 1st – we’ll have 1500 red and white shirts to hand out, so make sure to come early, or feel free to bring your own!
Stay tuned for the event schedule, which we’ll be launching over the next few weeks, and keep checking back for updates because we’ll be posting these regularly!
