Canada Day
in Port Credit!

Follow Us On Facebook

Though we are unable to host this year’s Canada Day celebrations, we do want to celebrate with our community & are hopeful we will be able to sometime later this year.  Please stay tuned.

Since 2003, Paint the Town Red has been a free Canada Day celebration for our community, Mississauga and the surrounding area. It is attended by tens of thousands of people from all across the GTA.

Our celebration begins with the mile long, Hazel McCallion Canada Day Parade that commences at Stavebank Road south on Lakeshore Road and travels East to Seneca Avenue. The parade is a star-studded production with colourful floats, characters and marching bands, which is immediately followed by a giant cake cutting ceremony at the parade routes end. Families can enjoy a free piece of our Canada’s National Flag cake.

The festivities continue throughout the afternoon and into the evening around the village and in Port Credit Memorial Park where many musical performers entertain the crowds on our Main Stage and Kid’s Stage. Also at the park are children’s activities, interactive games, shows and so much more…

The evening ends with the most spectacular fireworks display!

Schedule Of Events

Paint the Town Red’s day long, Canada Day celebrations kick off at 11 am with the GTA’s only Canada Day Parade, followed by the cutting of the largest Canada Day Cake at La Villa Bakery. Port Credit’s Memorial Park is filled with Vendors, Kids Zone, Main Stage entertainment, beer gardens and more.

What’s Canada Day without a spectacular fireworks finale? Free and fun for the whole family. See you there!
