If there was ever a year to celebrate Canada’s Birthday, this is it! Canada 150 events have already started leading up to the big nation-wide celebrations taking place on July 1. Whether you’re attending or hosting a backyard party or attending a public event, it’s a great time to prepare with patriotic products and apparel to show off your Canadian pride!

Party Planning

If you’re planning your own Canada 150 celebration there are some great items available out there to make it a bash to remember. Why not go old school with some traditional paper invitations designed by a Canadian artist? Check out these cute printable invites designed by Etsy Seller NightOwlStudioDesign. Customize them and mail them to your friends and family using Canada Post’s newly released Canada 150 postage stamp!

Once your RSVPs have come back and your guest list is more or less confirmed, head over to the party store to pick up some Canada themed décor and tableware. Get plates, cups, napkins and more! Hang a Canada Day banner, buy some stickers, flags, and patio lanterns and you’re all set!

If you’re having a smaller gathering and would prefer to use reusable drinkware, there are Canada 150 branded glassware sets available. These are not just great for celebrating now, but will serve as a nice memento in the future.


Be Potluck Ready

If you’ve been invited to a potluck party or gathering at someone else’s house, you’ll need something to carry your special dish in. Use an insulated market tote to keep your food hot or cold when transporting it to the event. You can also bring your drinks in a Canada themed cooler!

Need to pick up some ingredients for your dish? You can order some fresh Ontario pork, or hand-cut Canadian steaks (and more) from WagJag Grocery. Make a Canada inspired dish, such as Maple Glazed Pork Chops.


Fun and Games

One very Canadian way to celebrate Canada 150 is to get a game of street hockey going. Hockey Canada has some fun branded items such as mini hockey nets, street goalie masks, pucks, and sticks.


Dress the Part

It doesn’t matter if you’re celebrating in your backyard, a community park, or on Parliament Hill, you can wear your love for this country on your sleeve.

Men, women, children, infants, and even dogs can show their civic pride with Canada themed apparel.

If you live in Toronto (or are planning a visit) you can shop for something festive in the trendy Queen West neighbourhood! Or any of Canada’s famous shopping districts, for that matter.

Enjoy Canada 150 – no matter how you celebrate, make it the best ever!
