Bringing Canada Day to You!

July 1 is going to look a lot different than in previous years, but we promise there’ll be just as much creativity, pride and spirit! While we’ll miss having everyone join us at Riel Recreation Park for fun and adventure, we’re excited to offer a virtual approach to this year’s Canada Day festival. We’ve teamed up with other municipalities around the Edmonton Metropolitan Region to bring a shared celebration.
