Canada Day 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the need to physically distance, The City of Calgary is adapting plans for Canada Day celebrations. Although Calgarians can’t get together in the same location, all is not lost – we can still celebrate and show our national pride to the world!

During this time, it’s more important than ever to lift each other’s spirits, demonstrate unity and celebrate this wonderful country.

We know Calgary’s celebrations will need to look much different than in years past. We’re working hard to plan a memorable experience for all Calgarians and will provide updates as they become available.


Give us your suggestions!

We may be apart physically, but we’ll still celebrate together as a city and a country. We are looking for ideas on how Calgarians would like to commemorate Canada’s 153 birthday. Send us a short video showing how you’ll display your Canadian spirit from your homes, balconies and yards.

  • Will you hang all the red and white clothes you own from your tree or balcony?
  • Should we all break out our holiday lights once more and be creative in adapting them for Canada Day displays?
  • Will you and your neighbours bring your own picnics to your yards, driveways or balconies and sing a neighbourly round of O Canada while remaining physically distanced?
  • Will you add a western theme to your celebration to pay homage to the Calgary Stampede?
Share your ideas on social media using hashtag #OCanadaYYC.
