The 34th annual University of Waterloo Canada Day celebration takes off on Sunday, July 1 at 4p.m. Join us at the Columbia Lake Fields for the free event as we celebrate the anniversary of Canada’s confederation.
Legendary Juno-award-winning children’s performer Fred Penner will be preforming in the afternoon, followed by cultural performances before Juno-award-winning Canadian-rock icons Sloan take the OpenText Live Music Stage. Following the music performances there will be a fantastic fireworks display at dusk.
The University of Waterloo and the Federation of Students (Feds) are proud to host this event that will bring 50,000 people to our campus. Learn more about the day’s schedule and all of our performers.
Another feature of this celebration will be a food truck fair, which will be much larger this year due to the addition of several food trucks. As always guests have the opportunity to relax in the beer garden and participate in fun, family-friendly games in our “activity world”. Check out a full list of food vendors and find out more about our activity world.
The University of Waterloo and Feds ask that guests do their part to help ensure that this celebration is a Green Event. Doing any of the following will promote a safe and sustainable future for our campus:
