Family-friendly Canada Day activities and fireworks coming to Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park

Thursday, June 13, 2024

Residents of all ages are invited to Bronte Heritage Waterfront Park to enjoy Canada Day festivities on Monday, July 1, 2024. This year’s event offers extended hours for more time to enjoy family-friendly activities, live entertainment, fabulous food trucks, and a spectacular fireworks display.

The fun starts at 4 p.m. with performances by local community groups and the opportunity for attendees to try a variety of sports, make crafts, have their faces painted and visit community booths. Starting at 6 p.m. on the main stage, Juno award-winning artist Chris McKhool’s Earth, Seas & Air Concert and Cajun band Swamperella will perform, followed by Oakville-raised headliners, The Lonely Hearts. Strolling entertainment will include stilt walkers, a juggler, and a magician.

New this year – we want to hear how loud Oakvillians can sing! A local choir will lead the crowd through the singing of the national anthem to kick off our welcome ceremony starting at 8 p.m. At 10 p.m., weather permitting, a dazzling fireworks display will light up the sky as the grand finale of the festivities. 

Take Oakville Transit for free

The Town of Oakville is pleased to offer free Oakville Transit shuttle services to and from Bronte GO Station. Shuttle service will begin at 3:45 p.m., running every 10 minutes to provide safe and convenient access to the event due to road closures and no onsite event parking. The last shuttle to the park will leave Bronte GO Station at 9:30 p.m. Once the fireworks display has ended, return shuttle service to Bronte GO Station will begin.
