The day’s festivities conclude at 9pm with our annual fireworks show.

With over 8,000 people in attendance in the past three years, you’ll want to make sure you arrive early to grab a spot in front of the stage. From entertainment and sports to food and beverages, you’re sure to enjoy what we have in store for you during Celebration Canada.

This is a family-friendly event with lots of things for the kids to enjoy. Put your hockey skills to the test at our Hockey Booth. Have your face painted or get a Canadian temporary tattoo to show your Canadian pride.

We’ve added a lot more attractions to this year’s celebration in order to make sure you have the best Canada Day celebration in Taiwan you’ve ever experienced on Canada’s Birthday. We are introducing new games and activities, with lots of opportunities to win some great prizes from our sponsors.
