2022 Canada Day activities presented by the Town of Cobourg

From our beautiful lush, green landscapes to our culturally diverse population and our many variations of poutine, what's there not to love about the true north strong and free?


Canadians across the country and around the world show their pride in their history, culture and achievements on July 1. It's been a day of celebration, where many festivities are held across the country, since 1868. Canada Day in Cobourg has been a tradition in our beautiful Town for many years, bringing our entire community together, for residents and visitors to enjoy and share our special bond of living in one of the greatest countries in the world.



Government of CanadaWe are happy to have the support of the Govenrment of Canada and Cameco, one of the area's largest employers and community supporters.


We anticipate large crowds this year so please consider taking our FREE SHUTTLE leaving every 30 minutes from the Northumberland Mall and Cobourg Community Centre.


We also ask that you leave your pets at home. Guide dogs are permitted but pets are not due to the expected large crowd with many children also attending. We respectfully ask that people leave their pets at home where they won't be stressed by crowds and find themselves in a potentially reactive situation.
