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. We are 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 event could not take place without the support of our title sponsor Mattamy Homes, grants from Heritage Canada and the City of Ottawa, our Major sponsors Majic 100, Homeniuk Rides, Ottawa Special Events and the Barrhaven Business Improvement area, donations from various business and of course our 100+ volunteers that come out each and every year.
Our Kidz Zone has a free Activity Area and a Gym area with interactive games for children of all ages and a Kidz Zone Stage with many young child friendly acts. Our four day midway held from June 28 to July 1 has lots of games, food and amusement.
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 spectacular fireworks choreographed to music which always amazes people of all ages.
