Surrey Canada Day is always one of the country’s largest celebrations on July 1st and this year it’s even expanding to bring you move family-friendly fun! Miss604 is proud to once again be a sponsor of this event (since 2008) and I’m always happy to share all the goodness my hometown has to offer.
Surrey Canada Day
Where: Bill Reid Millennium Amphitheatre in Cloverdale (176 St & 64 Ave)
When: Monday, July 1, 2019 10:00am to 11:00pm (fireworks at 10:30pm)
Admission: FREE! You can also purchase tickets for the midway rides, and snacks from the many food trucks and vendors on site.
Here are 5 reasons to attend Surrey Canada Day this year, including a little bonus!
5. Sensory Friendly Space
In partnership with the Canucks Autism Network, this year’s Surrey Canada Day will provide a Sensory Friendly Space. Sensory friendly spaces are designated areas that have reduced input from the sensory environment. This includes decreased levels of lighting, sound and smell. Particularly helpful for individuals with autism, or anyone who is overwhelmed in busy public spaces, this space offers a wide range of elements to support relaxation, including comfortable seating, sensory toys, books, games and noise-cancelling headphones.
4. New Rodeo Zone
Attendees are invited to grab their best country hat, boots and denim for the new Cloverdale Rodeo Zone. Located inside the Cloverdale Agriplex, the area will offer country-themed activities including games, bull riding, an inflatable corn maze, axe throwing, western food vendors and live country music performances on the Rodeo Stage – featuring local Canadian Country headliner Dave Hartney. Additionally, the Rodeo Zone will feature a Summer Market offering artisan goods from over 20 local vendors.
3. Themed Zones and Rides
New to the amphitheatre, attendees can test their reflexes at the NHL feature in the Sports Zone, or participate in cedar brushing in the Indigenous Zone. You can even take a ride down the 200 ft zip line. These new attractions add to this year’s event roster, which includes 15 amusement rides,
Our Lady Peace is headlining (9:00pm), Bif Naked will be performing (7:30pm), and throughout the day you can catch live entertainment on 4 stages. The Hip Show, Buckman Coe, Star Captains, Her Brothers, Aché Brasil, Ashley Pater, Beauty Shop Dolls, Ben Klick, Dave Hartney, Nylez K, Jessie Farrell, The Wild Mocassin Dancers, Top Line Vocal Collective and many more!
Over 35 food trucks across the site will make sure you do not go hungry on Canada Day! From waffles and kettle corn to poutine, bannock, and those amazing Jamaican patties.
I saved food for the top spot because I also have $50 in food tickets to give away so you won’t even need to get out your wallet at Surrey Canada Day! Here’s how you can enter to win:
