Description: Any weekend is a  great weekend in Collingwood is a great weekend, but when it’s the Canada Day long weekend, it’s extra special.

Come out and Celebrate Canada’s special 150th birthday.

Celebrate our country and community at the Collingwood Festival for Canada, June 30th – July 2nd. This glowing family festival in the historic, harbourfront community of Collingwood is a traditional tribute to our glorious country.

From June 30th to July 2nd, there are dozens of free family activities taking place throughout downtown Collingwood and the harbour area.

Start the celebrations in Downtown Collingwood at 8:00 a.m. with the famous Canada Day Pancake Breakfast, then take part in the Citizenship Reaffirmation Ceremony at noon with Collingwood’s very own Town Crier. Everyone is invited to reaffirm his or her Canadian Citizenship, receive a commemorative certificate and have a free piece of birthday cake, courtesy of Loblaw Great Food!

The grand finale to a perfect day comes with the explosion of lights and colour filling the sky over the harbour when the Canada Day fireworks commence at 10:00 p.m.

With more than 25 different activities during this long weekend, there will be lots of play in Collingwood during this three-day Festival for Canada.

Collingwood stands on guard for FREE, with lots of free concerts, free kids activities, strolling street entertainment and so much more all to honour and celebrate the greatest country in the world.
