With this in mind, Surrey will be proudly showcasing our national heritage this year in a variety of ways for Canada Day. They have a large list of concerts, festivals and community events planned throughout the city.
“Surrey will be celebrating the best of our country and our people. I am delighted that our signature events will have major headliners who are not only first-rate artists in their own right, but they are all homegrown talent from BC,” said Mayor Linda Hepner.
The Canada Day performances and events include:
- April 22nd: Shawn Hook takes over the stage for Party For The Planet. Most people know him for his hit single “Sound Of Your Heart,” which has hit over 17 million streams on Spotify worldwide.

- July 22nd – 23rd: A summertime favourite, Nelly Furtado headlines this year’s Fusion Festival.
Furthermore, this year will also have the addition of Dominion Days (July 1st-2nd). The venue will be the Stewart Farm in South Surrey. For two days, visitors will travel back to the 1900’s through liv performances.
As well, Canada 150 zones are going to be situated at all the major event. These zones will showcase Canada’s unique heritage and will include a variety of interactive activities. You can expect to see First Nation’s performers, French-Canadian artists, and much more.
