Old Port of Montreal

Free event

Good weather, bad weather

Come together and celebrate on Saturday, July 1st at the Clock Tower Quay in the Old Port.

This year, Canada Day festivities will take a new form by focusing on family activities to bring Montreal families together.

The Clock Tower Quay, in the Old Port of Montreal, will transform into a neighbourhood party where families will have access to fun workshops, games, face painting, public entertainers, inflatable games and more.

The swearing-in ceremony for new Canadians, the Canadian Armed Forces Salute and the participation of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police are a must. This year, the traditional cake sharing will take place at two different times during the day to greet as many people as possible.

Canada's national holiday is celebrated on July 1.
