Floral Display, Amherstburg Ready to Celebrate Canada Day 2018

Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee commemorates the 70th anniversary of the Queen’s Reign. Amherstburg will celebrate all weekend long during the Open Air Weekends while embracing British culture. Wear your fascinators and join the fun!

Downtown Amherstburg will be filled with all things British!

As a kick-off to the Open Air Weekends, a tree-planting ceremony in King’s Navy Yard Park with a special visit from the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell, Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, is planned on Saturday, May 21 at 3:00 p.m. in Kings Navy Yard Park.

A free concert in the park with Beatles tribute band The Liverpool 4, a Queen’s scavenger hunt, a fascinator contest and other “royal” activities add to the fun!

“As the Crown’s representative in Ontario, the Lieutenant Governor promotes a strong, positive civic community, and Amherstburg is just that. We are delighted to host her honour!” said Mayor Aldo DiCarlo.
