Event Information

Once again, the Downtown Winnipeg BIZ invites everyone to participate in the annual Canada Day Living Flag event on Canada Day, July 1st. For the fifth-year anniversary of this annual event, and 50th anniversary of the Canadian flag itself, the photo will be set to the backdrop of Shaw Park, home of the Winnipeg Goldeyes, featuring Winnipeg’s signature skyline in the background.

Since the inaugural event in 2011, over 15,000 Winnipeggers have assembled downtown dressed in red and white patriotic attire, to create a living Canadian flag. Attracting young and old, Canadians of every heritage, the event’s new location at the ballpark offers a great kick-off to Canada Day festivities.
