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 by taking advantage of FREE transit on July 1st. Buses will run on a Saturday schedule with extended hours for the fireworks.

Back again for its third year is Pedal Parking. Hop on your bike, and be a part of an environmentally friendly and active Canada Day! 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 Kamloops Interior Summer School of Music (KISSM) will supervise your bicycle for the day.

Take part in the Get Canadian Run, enjoy live music at the Rotary Bandshell, taste international cuisine with the Kamloops Multicultural Society’s Folkfest and check out the largest outdoor art event in Kamloops, Art in the Park, organized by Kamloops Arts Council.

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