Canada Day at Canada Place has been western Canada’s premier Canada Day event for over 30 years, bringing communities together to share our special bond of living in one of the greatest countries in the world and celebrating our freedom, values and diversity.
This award-winning event, presented by the Port of Vancouver, is the largest Canada Day celebration outside our nation’s capital.
Vancouver’s only two-barge simultaneous pyrotechnic extravaganza. Watch as the sky lights up in celebration of our nation’s birthday! The two fireworks barges are located in Coal Harbour, and Dundarave in West Vancouver. Best viewing locations include:
- Fireworks Viewing Zone at Canada Place
- Harbour Green Park
- Coal Harbour
- Stanley Park (9 o’clock gun)
- Crab Park
- West Vancouver Seawall (between Ambleside and Dundarave)
*Please note fireworks are not viewable from English Bay, Kitsilano or Spanish Banks.
Tune in to Rock 101 to hear the official soundtrack to this year’s show as we play a selection of the best Canadian rock hits.
