Canada Day at Olympic Plaza
Make sure to plan a stop at Olympic Plaza on Canada Day to enjoy an amazing array of music, dance and storytelling for all the family. Kicking off with a jazz ensemble and integrating line dancing, opera, DJs, ballet, improv, roving performers, hands-on mask making and print-making workshops, plus a child-friendly craft activity at the Famous Five monument and a 1500+ strong guitar riff of Four Strong Winds – this location has something for everyone. Pledge your allegiance to Canada at the CIBC Citizenship Reaffirmation Ceremony, break some moves to Beatbox or simply sit back and enjoy watching our Chinook Country line dancers strut their stuff.
