Surrey’s Canada Day event is planned by the city’s special events team, with funding from sponsors and other levels of government.

Last time around, in 2019, rock band Our Lady Peace headlined Surrey’s July 1 celebrations in Cloverdale, with Bif Naked and others in concert, pre-pandemic.

“The City of Surrey is honoured to hold this event on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Salish Peoples, including the q̓ic̓əy̓ (Katzie), q̓ʷɑ:n̓ƛ̓ən̓ (Kwantlen), and Semiahma (Semiahmoo) land-based Nations,” notes a news release.

“Surrey Canada Day will meet health and safety guidelines as set out by the Provincial Health Officer, Worksafe BC, Fraser Health and appropriate industry associations.”
