Canada Day is celebrated in Fort Langley with a pancake breakfast, live entertainment and family-friendly activities both in town and at the historic fort.
Fort Langley Canada Day
Festivities usually begin at 8:00 am with the Lions Club pancake breakfast and celebrations continue in the town until about 3:00 pm.
In addition to activities taking place along King Street, they also take place in and around the BC Farm Museum and Langley Centennial Museum.
Canada Day isn’t a huge event in Fort Langley. It’s big for a small town, but nothing like some of the Lower Mainland’s major festivities elsewhere. It’s a fun community event though, and worth checking out.
