About Festivals in Canada

Canada offers an overabundance of must-see festivals that attract a lot of visitors every year. The festivals in Canada consist of children, comedy, cultural, and exhibitions for the whole family, but the greater parts are film and music themed for movie and music buffs alike.

Calgary Stampede coming soon in July is an exciting outdoor festival with big prizes for the winners of bull riding, steer wrestling, wagon racing and many other rodeo events. In the evening, there is music and dancing, stage shows, and all types of entertainment for everyone. Also in July, over 2,000 jazz musicians from all over the world convene together for the Montreal Jazz Festival. The Dawson City Music Festival is another event in July. It’s a three-day event of concerts and workshop, a must see for music enthusiasts. Canada music festivals are very well-attended; early reservation is advised.

Every year in September, movie fans flock to Canada for the Toronto International Film Festival, an event that is the equivalent of the Cannes and the Sundance film festivals. Big movies have their premieres at this celebrity-packed festival and it is always crowded with movie aficionados. For a cultural immersion, the Celtic Colours Festival is the answer. It is an international event attracting thousands of visitors for nine days in October as they celebrate the Celtic culture through music, concerts and exhibitions.
