Port Hope Canada Day Celebration

Thanks for joining us in Port Hope to celebrate Canada. Our goal for the Port Hope Canada Day Celebration was to present a homegrown festival that reflected the spirit of our community.

The 2019 Port Hope Canada Day Celebration was one for the memory books!

A post-event survey was issued and feedback, where possible, will be incorporated into the 2020 Port Hope Canada Day experience.

Mark your calendar and plan ahead to join us on July 1, 2020 in downtown Port Hope.

The Municipality of Port Hope hosted our Canada Day Celebration and what a celebration it was!

The festivities were made possible thanks to the generous contributions from our event partners and sponsors. Our event sponsors played a key role in uniting our community for a shared and engaging experience that connected us all to the nationwide celebration of our glorious country.

Big, happy, high-fives are extended to all of the following organizations, individuals and businesses for helping us deliver the party of the summer! Thank you.
