Galt Gardens - available anywhere downtown and is free on Canada Day

Henderson Lake Park - Parkside Drive, laneways and side roads in the area will be shut down from 7 am - midnight.  Parking is available at Exhibition Park. A transit shuttle will come through the Exhibition Park twice/hour and take people to the Lake, for those who require assistance, between 1 and 7 pm, and again from 9 pm to midnight, except during the fireworks show.

Downtown Free Shuttle - A free transit shuttle bus will pick up people downtown, on 6th Street next to the Bank of Montreal, between the hours of 1 pm - 7 pm.  This shuttle bus will leave downtown on the top and half of the hour.  The buses are accessible.  They will loop to the parking lot at Exhibition Park and then go to Henderson Lake.

Lethbridge Transit - Transit will be operational using their Sunday service hours.


The fireworks show is scheduled for 11 pm but this is weather dependent.  Any weather that puts the public at risk or creates an undesirable situation for firing fireworks may delay or cancel the show.


Alcohol is not permitted at any of the Canada Day events.  There is no beer garden available at either event and as such, normal rules around alcohol conumption apply - meaning that it is not allowed in public spaces such as the parks where these activities will be taking place.  Anyone witnessing this, or any other concerning activity, should report to the security or police on site.  

Family Activities

All events are considered family friendly and appropriate.  The younger children's events mainly take place at Henderson Lake Park but children and families are welcome to attend and participate in Galt Gardens events as well.


There will be an ATM on site at Henderson Lake.  There is no ATM avaialble at Galt Gardens however there are numerous bank machines available across from the park and within a few blocks.



We couldn't do this without our many many volunteers!  If you'd like to help out for a few hours, or the whole event, we are always in need of people for the committee (meets year-round but infrequently) and for the day of to be roving ambassadors, help with passing out flags, ensuring parking rules are being followed, providing help in the kids' area, and more!  Please contact Sarah Burton at or 403.320.3011.
