Canada Day 2017 at the University of Waterloo will be our biggest celebration yet! Join us on July 1 as we celebrate the University’s 60th anniversary, the 50th anniversary of our Federation of Students, and Canada’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.

Tom CochraneCanadian rock icon, Tom Cochrane with Red Rider, is headlining the OpenText stage, and Juno award-winning children’s performers Bobs & Lolo are back for the kids. 

A special Canada 150 cultural stage, hosted in partnership with the City of Waterloo, will be added this year, featuring local cultural organizations and indigenous content. It all comes together with an amazing fireworks display as we welcome over 60,000 to our campus.

More details about this special day, including more outstanding Canadian performers, and contests will be unveiled in the weeks leading up to Canada Day. It will be a great day to be part of our Waterloo community and for us to show our UWaterloo pride!
