Canada Day in Kamloops

Kamloops, B.C. – Head down to Riverside Park this Canada Day to celebrate with a full day of culture, arts, music and festivities. The day begins with a Lions Pancake breakfast and ends with a colourful display of fireworks.

Go green this Canada Day by taking the bus! Avoid parking downtown and the construction congestion by taking advantage of FREE transit on July 1st. Buses will run on a Saturday schedule.

Back again for its second year is Pedal Parking. Hop on your bike, and be a part of an environmentally friendly and active Canada Day! The Scotiabank MS Bike Pedal Parking will be located at the west side of Riverside Park in the Tennis Courts. Between 8:00 am and 7:00 pm, bring your own lock, and MS Society will supervise your bicycle for the day.

Take part in the Get Canadian Run, enjoy live music at the Rotary Bandshell, watch the Canadian Citizenship Ceremony, peruse Art in the Park or taste international cuisine with the Kamloops Multicultural Society’s Folkfest.

A special thank you to the Kamloops Multicultural Society and the Kamloops Arts Council for organizing the Canada Day festivities, and to BCLC and Heritage Canada for sponsoring this event.
