District of Tofino Canada Day plans

Tofino’s annual Canada Day celebration takes place on Tuesday, July 1st on Tofino’s Village Green. The Tofino Recreation Commission and Tofino Parks Recreation have teamed up once again to host the day’s events. The Tofino Public Market will start the day off at 10am and run until 2pm, featuring a wide range of locally made goods and live music. The skate competition gets underway in the

Tuff City Skate Park at 11 am, running the younger kids categories first and ending with the advanced skaters. Participants should register early as some categories do fill up. This year’s BBQ will feature hamburgers and hot dogs for lunch, sourced from local farms, and Creative Salmon will once again be sponsoring the dinner BBQ.

The refreshment gardens will kick off in the basketball courts at 4pm and wrap up at 8pm.

Don’t miss the singing of O’Canada and the cutting of the cake at the Village Green Gazebo at 2pm sharp. The day will be wrapped up at 10pm with the annual fireworx show out of the Tofino Inner Harbour. The day promises to provide entertainment for all ages so grab the family, a hat and some sun screen and head to the Tofino Village Green to enjoy this community event.
