Canada Day Celebrations!

Dartmouth Pancake Breakfast 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM
Start Canada Day 2018 with a FREE pancake breakfast at Alderney Landing on the Dartmouth Waterfront (while supplies last).

The Lions Club, DND and our Air Cadets Dedicate their Canada Day to make this event special for our community. We sincerely thank them for their amazing work.

Main Event Concert 5:00 PM - 11:59 PM
Everyone's favorite free, all-age, concert of the summer is back at Alderney Landing this year!

Put on your red and white, and get ready to celebrate together.

Juno nominated Allan Rayman makes his Atlantic Canadian debut to show Halifax exactly why major festivals like Osheaga, Field Trip, Bunbury Festival and others have nabbed this breakout artist for their stage this summer. Allan Rayman is known for being quite on social media, preferring to let his sound speak for itself. His music is a smokey blend of alternative R&B meets grunge-rock and will be a perfect headliner to what promises to be one of the most spectacular LIVE music experiences of summer '18.

Another Juno nominated artist, and Dartmouth favourite, MoKenney Music is fresh off an ECMA win from her latest album, 'The Details', and is ready to rock the Canada Day Main Stage. Mo Kenney has been consistently producing some of the best music to come out of the region with captivating vocals, and song writing, wrapped in a cozy indie vibe we can't get enough of.

Supporting acts will include Nova Scotia's own T. Thomason's raw and emotional rock sound and Alfie who's been transforming his hip-hop swag to a matured, sultry R&B, act with serious soul.

The day wraps up with our iconic firework show over the Halifax Harbour, but the night is JUST getting started... Skratch Bastid, Canadian DJ legend and official ambassador to Red Bull 3Style, is back in Halifax to remind you that true turntabilism is alive and well. Skratch Bastid has unreal energy at his shows, playing whatever it takes to keep the crowd pumped up and moving late into the night.

All ages concert with 19+ Licensed Area (I.D. Required)

Official Canada Day Fireworks 10:00 PM
Our spectacular firework show is back on the Dartmouth Waterfront! The best viewing area is from the concert crowd at Alderney Landing or if you don't want to be in the concert area, bring your chairs or blankets to the green space along Ferry Terminal Park!
