Kanata Day - Canada Day 2022


KANA’TA: Canada Day 2022 on Friday, July 1, 2022.

This new, re-envisioned format for Canada Day will offer residents across the region a variety of new and refreshed cultural, musical, and family-oriented events to enjoy.

Developed in close collaboration with Indigenous communities, KANA’TA: Canada Day 2022 offers programming that honours the traditions of the Mi’kmaw Nation and celebrates pan-Indigenous communities that call the municipality home.

KANA’TA: Canada Day 2022 programming will include Mawio’mi on the Commons, the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo Canada Day Parade, a Dartmouth Summer Sunshine Series free concert, and a KANA’TA x Grand Oasis Festival free concert – which will feature co-headliners Neon Dreams and Crown Lands, supported by Drives The Common Man, DeeDee Austin, and Eastern Eagle. The KANA’TA x Grand Oasis Festival concert event will be hosted by Garratt Gloade, and free passes are available at

KANA’TA: Canada Day 2022 will also offer three separate, community-based fireworks and pyrotechnics shows in Halifax, Dartmouth, and Bedford.
