Residents are invited to join an uplifting, virtual celebration of our amazing community by tuning in to Canada Day the Durham Way on Thursday, July 1, 2021. This collaborative event—in co-operation with the Region of Durham and all eight local-area municipalities—will highlight unique attractions and talents that drive our vibrant arts and culture scene. This event celebrates our region and our one-of-a-kind mix of small-town hospitality and unique urban amenities; a celebration of our multicultural landscape and cultures; exciting performers; one-of-a-kind children’s activities; and musical talent. Leading up to Canada Day, join us for the Paint the Region Red contest and submit your songs to our Canada Day playlist for a chance to win great prizes! Explore your local community on a scavenger hunt, gather your family for the trivia contest, and pick up your Canada Day celebration kit! Come together as a community—while practicing physical distancing—by tuning in to virtual Canada Day celebration, which will be available through this page on July 1!
