Victoria Celebrates Canada Day 2014 is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of family-friendly events, main stage performances, fireworks, and A Flavour of Canada, all set to take place on July 1st, 2014!
As we continue our green initiative, expect to see the Canada Day Team Green out in full force in a bid to keep our beautiful Inner Harbour clean. Also returning will be the free bike valet service, which offers a safe place to lock up bikes for all those who wish to leave their cars at home. (scroll down to see full schedule)
