Canada Day Activities in Ottawa!

Happy Almost Canada Day!!! I’ve put together a list of all the events going on in Ottawa for our nation’s birthday!

If you are hosting a public party and would like it included, please let me know and I’ll include it! I’ll keep this list growing throughout the week. I have not included regular nights in the night clubs as there are just way too many to list here.

The following list are all the events for July 1st in and around Ottawa and the National Capital Region. There is one event I want to include though that takes place on June 30th to help us “kick off” our Canada Day Weekend!
