Local businesses, community groups and organizations are invited to show off their patriotism by entering parade floats in the Canada Day parade downtown Grande Prairie or booking a booth space in Muskoseepi Park as part of the City’s annual Canada Day celebrations on July 1.

Canada Day is the City’s largest annual event, with 20,000 people attending annually to celebrate the history, culture and pride for our nation. It includes a parade, a wide variety of festivities in Muskoseepi Park for all ages and a fireworks display. Participating in the event with a parade float or booth space is an unmatched opportunity to showcase your organization, connect with community and take part in Canada Day celebrations.

The 2024 Canada Day parade theme is Coast to Coast, highlighting Canada’s diverse landscapes, from the Atlantic to the Pacific and up to the Arctic. Floats can represent iconic landmarks, wildlife and regional cultures, offering a tour of our country.
