Canada Day Celebration Announcement

Canada Day Celebration

Each year, the University of Waterloo and our Federation of Students thank our community for its partnership and mutual support by hosting Waterloo Region's flagship Canada Day Celebration. Canada Day 2014 marked the 30th anniversary of our celebration, with more than 60,000 people in attendance, and we’re building another exceptional event for our community this year.

Kim MitchellThe University of Waterloo is excited to announce that popular Vancouver-based children’s musical duo, Bobs & LoLo, will light up the afternoon with engaging performances on the TVOKids Stage hosted by the beloved Gisèle Corinthios. And outstanding national talent will headline our Live Music Stage, with Juno-Award winners, The Strumbellas, kicking off the evening concert, and Canadian rock icon, Kim Mitchell, closing the show.

Families are welcome to explore a number of free and interactive activities. From face painting and arts and crafts, to inflatable obstacle courses, there's guaranteed fun for everyone. Catch a super silly show on the field from the talented Silly People, get snapped in our Canada Day photo booth, and even cool off on the University of Waterloo Engineering society water slide.

Canada Day crowdEveryone is invited to fill up on delicious festival fare from a variety of local food vendors, including summer classics like ice cream and cotton candy, or try something new from our community’s diverse multicultural offerings. And adults can relax and enjoy a refreshing break with a craft beer from Ontario’s first and largest micro brewery, Waterloo Brewing Co.

The University of Waterloo Canada Day Celebration offers entertainment for all ages. Join us on Wednesday, July 1 at Columbia Lake Fields and share your national pride with the community!
