The excitement will last throughout the day with activities including:

  • Live performances where you’ll have the chance to get involved and explore your theatre skills by participating!

  • Food Trucks to satisfy your taste buds!
  • A Magic Show on the stage that will amaze you!
  • A petting zoo located on Burning Glass Road to hang out with some furry friends.

The action-packed day for you and your kids will end off the incredible event with a spectacular firework show at 10:30pm that will surely amaze you! Everyone is invited to escape the hustle and bustle of downtown celebrations and celebrate Canada’s birthday in Sage Creek.

“We are inviting everyone from Sage Creek and the surrounding communities to come out and join us for our big Canada Day celebration this year,” says Wong and adds that last year’s celebration brought approximately 4,000 people.
