WHAT TO DO for Canada Day!
It's Canada's birthday!
150 years is something to celebrate and because of that, the Canada Day party will last 3 days this year, from June 20 to July 2! Keep in mind that because of that, many streets will be closed downtown but free shuttles will be there to help move around. Celebrations details right over here.
MosaiCanada 150 is without a doubt one of the most awaited events of the summer! The 1km course will show you over 40 majestic installations representing Canada, starting Friday June 30 at 3pm. Info: here.
The brand new Canadian History Hall opens July 1st, after a four-year wait. It is absolutely worth a visit and it's free of charge on July 1st and 2. Open from 9am to 10 pm on the 1st!
The Picnic on the Bridge is July 2. You were amongst the lucky people who giot a ticket? Great! But whether you're here for the picnic or not, no matter if you're just here celbrating or just there randomly, the Table agroalimentaire de l’Outaouais offers Ruelle gourmande, where you can buy regional products and meet the producers, as you enjoy entertainment by buskers. You'll be happy to not have packed a lunch! A nice preview of the Fête gourmande to be held in Chelsea on August 27.
We've just launched the Culture Trail in downtown Gatineau! Discover the best of Old Hull by following the red line! At one end of the trail is La Fonderie, where the magnificent As Far As Eyes See exhibition, organized by the bunch at La Filature for the NAC's Canada Scene, is shown until August 30.
There are festivities throughout the region, among which:
Entertainment-wise, Casino du Lac-Leamy is where it's at!
Starting June 29, revisit the 20s, 50s, and 80s with Retro Casino! Animation, dancing, costumes, a photobooth, cocktails and lots of surprises are to be expected. A party like only the casino knows how to throw!
