Canada Day celebration at the PNE

THE PNE will be holding a Canada Day parade celebration on Wednesday, July 1.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be celebrating Canada this Wednesday, with a unique drive thru event,” said Shelley Frost, President and CEO of the PNE, on Monday. “We’ve seen a huge amount of support for our previous drive thru events and we can’t wait to kick off the rest of our summer events with this Canada Day Celebration.”

On Canada Day the PNE will host the first ever drive thru Canada Day celebration. It is designed with full COVID protocols in place as a ‘reverse’ parade, which will see guests drive their cars along the parade route.

The experience will celebrate everything Canada with live performers, logger sports, and a celebration of Canada’s national sport of hockey along the route.

Guests will be encouraged to decorate their vehicles in a Canadian theme and dress in their favourite red and white and wave the flag with pride.

The experience is $10 per car, regardless of number of passengers plus the cost of any food purchased with that going to our concessionaires. Fair food includes corn dogs, hot dogs, poutine, cotton candy, and lemonade. All food purchases must be made in advance. Three of the PNE longest standing and multigenerational families will be supported through this event. Tickets are available now at
