Canada Day might look different than ever before, but COVID-19 can’t stop our pride for our country. New Westminster’s Canada Day celebration has gone virtual!
This year, choose your own adventure and take part in activities available now, leading up to and including Canada Day. Order take out or delivery, put on some music and dance the night away (safely distanced from your neighbours, of course). Just because we can’t physically be together doesn’t mean we can’t unite from afar!

The virtual celebration features a collection of easily accessible and family friendly activities including: arts and crafts, games, celebration packs, an O Canada sing-along and a bubble picnic. Plus, the evening will end with an exciting virtual fireworks show!
Our virtual fireworks display will be taking place on the Snapd Hub app, where augmented reality will make fireworks show up in the sky right from your phone! Find more details here, RSVP to the Facebook event and be sure to follow us on social media for the latest updates and insider tips. This River Market blog also includes some cool entertainment packages and safe dining options!
This project has been made possible thanks to the support of City of New Westminster, Government of Canada, Uptown New West BA and yours truly, Downtown New West BIA. We can’t wait to share this exciting holiday with you, from the safety of our own homes.
