Canada Day Parade

The Canada Day parade begins at noon on July 1 at Town Plaza and winds along the Village Stroll, ending at Mountain Square.

The parade is organized in partnership between the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) and the Chamber of Commerce and this year’s theme is “My Canada! – What does Canada mean to you?”

Each year, Whistler businesses and community groups are invited to enter floats in the parade to showcase their business or organization to over 5,000 community members and visitors in the Village.

All floats will be judged on creativity, effort and theme demonstration for the following categories:

  • Best interpretation of the parade theme
  • Most team effort, involvement and enthusiasm
  • Best innovative approach to a sustainable entry
  • Best musical entry
