“True North Strong and Free” Canada Day in Amherstburg!
Celebrate Canada Day on Monday, July 1, 2019 in Amherstburg! We welcome new Canadians at a live Citizenship Court on the beautiful, waterfront grounds of Fort Malden National Historic Site (NHS). Festivities rev up with the 5k Canada D’Eh run that starts at 9 a.m. The “Canadiana” experience continues with free, family activities and performances throughout the parks. Decorate and cycle to the event for free valet and bike rodeo at Toddy Jones Park.
New this year, “Amherstburg in Motion” hits the pavement! Kids will love checking out the Zamboni, getting sprayed by Amherstburg’s new Fire Truck hose and other “big machine” surprises while popular food trucks serve up scrumptious meals in Toddy Jones Park!
Live concerts by Two Years Apart and Big Louis and the Band hit the stage at 7:00 p.m. Day ends with the OUTDOOR MOVIE, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them! (bring your lawn chairs and blankets)
“Canada Day at Fort Malden NHS has become an iconic family tradition. We thank the Department of Canadian Heritage for supporting such an inclusive and fun event for our region.” says Mayor Aldo DiCarlo “It’s the best birthday party ever!”
