Canada Day in Port Hope is a party! We're a small town with big community pride. Join us July 1 for all the fun and fireworks.

Celebrate with a traditional parade and fantastic fireworks over the lake

Pipes and drums, vintage cars and flag-waving floats head down our main street in the annual Canada Day parade to Memorial Park downtown. It's the site for more celebrations – live music in the bandshell, a bouncy castle for the kids, a classic car show, great barbecue and a beer garden.

Port Hope likes a party!

Even the Mayor likes to be on hand to pass out pieces of birthday cake. At dusk, Port Hope lights up the sky with spectacular musical fireworks over the lake. Come bring your lawn chairs and blankets to the East Beach for this free and fabulous show!
