t’s Canada’s birthday and everyone’s invited. No one throws a party like the community of Abbotsford, so you won’t want to miss out.


Since 2004, Prospera Credit Union has had the privilege to be the title sponsor of Abbotsford’s Canada Day celebration and it is inspiring to see the energy and enthusiasm from organizers, volunteers and supporters invested in making this a full-scale celebration.


The theme of this year’s event is Jungle Jamboree and the parade (which begins at 11:00 am and makes its way along South Fraser Way to Abbotsford Exhibition Park) will be a highlight as everyone gets into the wild and wonderful spirit of the day. The other big highlight will, of course, be the fireworks celebration that caps off the day’s festivities at 10:00 pm.


Some of the other activities taking place in Abbotsford Exhibition Park as part of the Canada Day Family Festival (beginning at 1:00 pm) include nine interactive Fun Zones, an artisan market, main stage entertainment all day long, pony rides, mini golf, birthday cake and so much more. Kids of all ages are invited to get their art on and create their own personal design on a mug provided by Prospera, then take it home and bake it to perfection.


Abbotsford is a special community, made better by the people who call it home. A big thank you to all of the volunteers who make Abbotsford’s Canada Day celebration one of the best in the country. Join the party everyone and share your pride at the Abbotsford Canada Day celebration.
