Canada Day

Canada Day 2020

For July 1 this year, Banff is turning its Downtown Pedestrian Zone into an entertainment and activity space for Canada Day.

Rather than a parade, community participants will provide performances and displays dispersed throughout the pedestrian zone, easily accessed by strolling through our downtown. 

Performances and activities can be discovered throughout the day at these main locations:

  • Banff Avenue Pedestrian Zone
  • Bear Street and plaza
  • Whyte Museum Grounds beside Bow Avenue
  • Banff High School Field on Banff Avenue

Activities include a special Canada Day Market on Bear Street, games and activities for the whole family at the high school, storytime at the Banff Public Library, music and more at the museum grounds and Banff Avenue, and a pyrotechnic display to wrap up the day’s events.
