TOL. On Canada Day, people across the country will be celebrating everything that makes our country great. Why not join them by marking the occasion in Fort Langley, a place filled with history, art, culture, entertainment, and information?

A free, fun, family event will be jointly hosted by the Langley Centennial Museum and the BC Agricultural and Farm Museum from 11am to 3pm on Monday, July 1. Located at 9135 King Street in Fort Langley, the Centennial Museum will host a variety of Canada Day events and activities, including crafts, face painting, food vendors, balloon artistry, a children’s Music Together program, and old fashioned games and races.

New this year is a guided historical walking tour through Fort Langley. Inside the Museum, visitors can participate in a colouring contest, scavenger hunt, or watch a demonstration from local spinners and weavers. The celebration will also feature Langley Arts Council’s second annual “One Can Arts Festival,” where many local artists will be selling their art onsite.

As well, the main stage will feature the Red Stone Alley Band, a Fun-Filled Kids Concert with Janina Russell, Mr. I & the Rainbow Singers, and Folkistra: A Family Band.
At noon, an opening ceremony will feature greetings from Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese and Glisha Dela Cruz will be singing the national anthem. Free Canada Day cake will also be served to guests.
