Celebrate Canada Day

Each July 1st, Brampton's Canada Day draws thousands of residents and visitors to celebrate Canada's birthday.

Last year, our celebration included international and local live entertainment, fun, family activities, global food vendors across two food zones, a craft beer garden and a spectacular fireworks display, proudly sponsored by Tim Hortons.
