Canada Day

​​​​​​2021 Canada Day - Celebrate in your own backyard!


​The City of Lethbridge acknowledges that we are gathered on the lands of the Blackfoot people of the Canadian Plains and pays respect to the Blackfoot people past, present and future while recognizing and respecting their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship to the land.  The City of Lethbridge is also home to the Métis Nation of Alberta, Region III.


Due to the unprecedented affect the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our community and the world, we will not be able to celebrate Canada Day in the traditional Lethbridge fashion. 

There will be no fireworks or public events at Henderson Park or Galt Gardens this year.

Instead, we've tried to find alternative options to help the citizens of Lethbridge celebrate and show their Canadian pride.  Whether you're celebrating together as a family, or on your own, we hope to provide plenty of activities and resources to help you celebrate.
