Canada Day is one of the most important celebrations in the country. Activities will be held in Toronto to celebrate July 1st. Here we share the best options for celebrating in the best possible way.

Canada Day is the celebration that commemorates the unification of what is now the Canadian nation. On July 1, 1867, the North America Act was passed, allowing United Canada, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick to merge into one country.
Therefore, being a large-scale celebration, streets across the nation are filled with color, music, parties, and fireworks. In 2022, there will be events not to be missed.
As tradition dictates, the fireworks show will take place in different parts of Toronto for Canada Day. The show will begin at 10 p.m. ET, but we recommend arriving a few hours earlier for a spectacular view.
The most popular places in Toronto where you can enjoy this activity are:
- Mel Lastman Square
- Ashbridges Bay Park
- Stan Wadlow Park
- Milliken Park
The festival will take place from Dieppe Park to Stan Wadlow Park. In this area, you will find various food and drink stalls to get you in the mood from 11am.
Plus, you can listen to live music from local artists like Trainwreck, Beatles/British Invasion, Sugar Daddies Jazz Band, and East York Blues Allstars. Don’t miss it!
Celebrate Canada Day at Downsview Park
If you are looking for a more familiar plan, we recommend going to Downsview Park. From 4 p.m., find inflatable structures and games for your little ones, live music, artists and food trucks.
It is expected that at 10 p.m. a fireworks display will take place in this part of the city.
Picnic at Woodbine Park
The party at Woodbine Park will begin at 2:30 p.m. Don’t miss this tribute-to-rock themed celebration. Don’t miss the local bands playing covers of great exponents of the genre such as Queen, Led Zepplin, Bob Markley, Eagles and Tom Petty. And of course there will be fireworks at night.
All of the Canada Day events mentioned above are completely free. If you plan to attend, remember to arrive early and enjoy yourself to the fullest.
