May 2017

Along with the financial support for the operational budget, this grant provides lots of free Canada Day memorabilia. Stop by the Welcome Booth in Centennial Park to pick up your flags, tattoos and flag pins on Canada Day.

Once again, LaFarge has proven themselves a generous supporter of Bath Canada Day activities. Their increased grant for 2017 will make for an even more spectacular Fire Works show. Prepare to be wowed!




Funding from Ontario Power Corporation goes toward the Parade, which this year has 10 new entries including Sir John A. and Lady Agnes Macdonald as the Parade Grand Marshals.




This grant will enable us to enhance our programming for kids and showcase the talents of area musicians with live music from 10 am to 10 pm. Visitors will enjoy the buskers performing throughout the village during the day, a children’s concert by Gary Raspberry, the sweet sounds of Fred Brown and Friends and the outdoor concert starting at 5:30 pm on the Church Street stage at the Tennis Courts.

The Bath Lion’s Club is sponsoring the return of Fred Brown and Friends to the music stage in Centennial Park from 2-5 pm.

is sponsoring the free shuttle from the Event Parking Area just north of the School on County Road 7. This is a great solution to the problem of finding a parking space on congested village streets or being transported hassle free right to the corner of Church and Main in the heart of the activities.

The Loyalist Parkway Association is once again sponsoring the Horse Drawn Wagon Rides. This perennial attraction takes visitors on a short jaunt through the Village past a number of historic buildings.








Each year Morven Construction provides a flat bed trailer for our musical stage in Centennial Park and the traffic cones to ensure that Academy Street remains a passable route through the Village when Main Street is closed. This contribution has been going on for at least 25 years.



Thank you to all the area businesses, service groups and individuals who have made a contribution to the 2017 Bath Canada Day/ Canada 150 celebrations. It doesn’t happen with out YOU!
