Coast to Coast Virtual Canada Day Events 2020

Canada is turning 153 this year, and while we can’t get together physically, we can definitely get together virtually! New social distancing norms mean that there will be no large gatherings to mark the national holiday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t throw a great Canada Day party at your home for your household. From local performers, to at-home crafts and projects you can do to celebrate, we have created a list of great virtual parties that you can check out on Canada Day. The best part is, you can check out celebrations from anywhere across Canada, without travelling! Have a happy Canada Day!
