THE COUNTDOWN HAS STARTED!
ONLY 3 MONTHS TILL WE CELEBRATE OUR NATIONAL HOLIDAY – We Hope!
The Bath Canada Day Committee’s goal is to provide the residents of Bath and Loyalist Township with a day to celebrate our history and our community, reconnect with friends and family and welcome visitors. We strive to showcase our historical roots, to provide a day of family friendly activities, and to celebrate individuals and groups who make our community a better place to live, work, learn and play.
Volunteer and financial support from individuals, businesses and service groups ensures that a wide range of family-friendly programs are offered on Canada Day and that cost is not a barrier to participation.

Historical Costume Workshop
Many thanks to Debbie Lovegrove and Grace Partridge, members of the Historical Costume Club of Kingston
On April 25th they provided an informative and supportive workshop for ladies looking to dress up for the 2019 celebrations. From pattern choices and alterations, trying on petticoats and hoops, making hats and learning about the styles of a bygone era, everyone had fun. They will also help folks going forward as needed.
Because of the flooding in Centennial Park, all of the activities that would normally have taken place there on Canada Day moved to Church Street next to the Fire Station
- Vendor’s Market
- Live Entertainment
- Horse Drawn Wagon Rides
- Firemen’s Foam a.k.a Bath Bubbles
- Official Ceremonies
- Welcome Booth
- Displays etc.will be moving to the Park behind the Pickleball/Tennis Courts on Church Street.
