Maple Ridge Canada Day Event

Maple Ridge on Canada Day

Canada Day festivities in Maple Ridge usually happen at the Memorial Peace Park and ACT Art Centre on July 1st. In 2021 it was a drive-through event instead.

Maple Ridge celebrated Canada Day in 2020 in an online format due to COVID-19. In 2021, the city hosted a drive-through “Cross Country Road Trip” event at the Albion Fairgrounds and Sports Complex. In 2022 celebrations took place in-person at Memorial Peace Park. 2023 celebrations are likely to be the same.

Tips and Advice

Below are some tips and advice to help you make the most of your Maple Ridge Canada Day experience.

TIP #1: If driving, arrive early as parking on the day is challenging. Limited underground parking is available if you use the Edge Street and Dewdney Trunk entrances. There is also a fair bit of street parking in the area, although you may need to walk a ways.

TIP #2: Carpool or take public transit if you can.

TIP #3: Some of the live entertainment usually takes place indoors at the ACT Art Centre (which makes the Maple Ridge Canada Day event an especially good one in case of rain).
