UWaterloo Canada Day Celebration 2018

Celebrate Canada Day 2018 at the University of Waterloo!

Célébrez la fête du Canada 2018 à l'Université de Waterloo! 

We are excited to announce our featured entertainers for Canada Day 2018 as we plan for our 34th annual celebration – Sloan and Fred Penner.

The afternoon kicks off with a bang for children of all ages featuring the iconic, multi-Juno award winning children’s performer, Fred Penner. Fred is well-known for his North American-wide appearances, his television show, Fred Penner's Place that aired on CBC and Nickelodeon.

In the evening on the OpenText Live Music Stage, rock to the tunes of Sloan, the Canadian Juno-award winning pop quartet who have released 12 full-length albums, two EPs, a live album, a Greatest hits album and more than 30 singles. Their performance will be capped off with our annual, not-to-be-missed fireworks display, the largest in the area!

Our Canada Day celebration offers food, fun and activities for everyone. Take in dance and musical performances by local community cultural groups performing on our entertainment stage, fill your senses and your appetite at the Food Truck Fair, or participate in our Activity World.

Join us for a fun-filled, memorable event. Watch some of the highlights from the last year’s Canada Day Celebration.
