Canada Day in Barrhaven brings the best celebration to our community!
Canada Day Barrhaven Inc. is very excited for this year’s edition of Mattamy Homes Canada Day in Barrhaven celebrating this great country’s 150th Anniversary.
Canada Day Barrhaven Inc. is a partnership of local Community Associations, Business members, City of Ottawa Councillors, Service Groups, Churches and Youth Groups that are dedicated and committed to bringing the best Canada Day in Barrhaven celebration to our community at Clark Fields.
Our great event could not take place without the support of our title sponsor Mattamy Homes, grants from Heritage Canada, the Province of Ontario, the City of Ottawa, donations from various community/business and of course our over 100 volunteers that come out each and every year.
Our Kidz Zone has a free Kidz Zone Activity Area with games for children of all ages and a Kidz Zone Stage with many young child friendly acts. Our 4 day midway held from June 29 to July 2 has lots of games, food and amusement. We will also introduce a NEW Kidz Zone Gym area.
An essential portion of our activities incorporates multi-cultural expression in song and dance, language and dress, bringing together the various ethnic and religious persuasions represented in our diverse community on our Multi-Cultural Stage. As our community becomes so much more diverse culturally we want to bring in even more multi-cultural activities, to partner with this we will be offering cuisines from the many different cultures.
On our Main Stage, before our main acts perform, we will have a parade of Territorial, Provincial and Canadian Flags carried by people from different cultures, the singing of our National Anthem, official remarks from Federal, Provincial and municipal elected officials. Our master of ceremony duties will be performed in both official languages and where feasible promotion and advertising will incorporate both official languages.
The day ends with a spectacular fireworks show choreographed to music which always amazes people of all ages.
NEW for 2017 we will have Classic Car Show and some great bands on stage from 5pm to 10pm on Friday June 30th for a pre-Canada Day Celebration. On July 1st we will have a Seniors breakfast starting at 8:00am sponsored by V!VA Retirement Community and Hosted by Jan Harder
