Celebrate Canada 150 in Aurora

The Town of Aurora will be celebrating Canada's birthday throughout the year. Celebrations and celebratory opportunities are infused throughout our year round events.

From celebrating Canadian bands, artists and songwriters during the Concerts in the Park summer series, to capping off the year for the first time with fireworks as part of Aurora's Family First Night. There is a lot of see and experience at these memorable and engaging events. Visit the individual event listing often for updates as information is added frequently.
