Canada Day Family Experience

Is your birthday July 1st? Got proof?

In addition to all of the great FREE, fun and interactive family activities happening at Olympic Plaza, if your birthday is July 1st and you can prove it you’ll be granted exclusive access to the ‘BIP tent’ packed with free goodies and prizes. We’ll also have a birthday cake, large enough to feed all the birthday boys and girls (of any age) and a few hundred of their friends on site.

It doesn’t matter where you were born or what year, we want to celebrate your birthday in style. You can bring your entire family down as there are tons of FREE activities available for children and adults of all ages.
