Virtual Canada Day Celebrations Roundup


Virtual Canada Day Celebrations Roundup

This year, Canada Day celebrations are more like a choose-your-own-adventure novel where you can end up in any number of cities for a virtual celebration. 

While we look to stay close to home right now, thumb through this virtual Canada Day roundup to satisfy the travel bug with some at-home partying in BC, Alberta, and the big party in Ottawa.

Victoria, BC

A line-up of diverse, multicultural performances streamed on the City’s website and a range of online platforms on July 1 at 7 p.m. PST.
