The theme will be Canadiana at CanadaFest, from poutine to a Queen Elizabeth II impersonator.

You could spend the day at Canada Place then walk over to English Bay for the last night of the Honda Celebration of Light fireworks, enjoying all that Vancouver has to offer in the summer.

Canada Place is one of Vancouver’s most recognizable icons and is the first thing that thousands of international cruise ship travellers experience when they disembark. It’s fitting that they celebrate all things Canada with this new, free, family festival.
