Canada Day in Stittsville is shaping up to be a great event, with a mix of new attractions and traditional favourites. Please join us for a day of family-friendly fun on the grounds of Sacred Heart High School, July 1st from 1pm to 10 pm. Fireworks will go off at 9:45 pm sharp.
We’ve had to make some small changes to our programming due to the heat, but we will have live music all afternoon and evening, some great inflatables, including a zipline, horse and wagon rides, face painting by Honeydrop Body Art, a petting zoo, free birthday cake and glow sticks, and food served up by local favourites Jo-Jo’s Pizza, Pong’s Poutine, Crave Tacos, and Holmespun Ice Cream. Stay tuned for more details, and please do get in touch if you can volunteer. We need many helpers for this event to succeed. Students welcome!
In addition to the opening ceremony at 1 pm, our Celebrate Canada Canadian Heritage Stage is proud to showcase live, local entertainment from: The Mahoney Sisters (1:20 pm), The L.A. Connection (2pm), Blues Wind (3 pm), dance demos by Nxt Generation Dance (4 pm), Jumpin’ Jimmy Leroux (5 pm), Billy Martin & Friends (6 pm), Wild and Crazy (7 pm), Poole Creek (8 pm), and Scheduled Conflict (9 pm).
