Snowbirds are a Canadian Icon

The Canadian Forces Snowbirds uphold the proud legacy of the Golden Centennaires air demonstration team, who formed to celebrate Canada’s Centennial in 1967. As a Canadian icon, they are eager to inspire all Canadians by showcasing the skill, professionalism, and teamwork of the Canadian Armed Forces.

Their team is made up of highly skilled pilots, technicians and support personnel ‎from across Canada, whose dedication to excellence is embodied in the awe-inspiring tight formations of red and white jets in the sky over head.

Join your 2017 Canadian Forces Snowbirds as they proudly honour Canada’s strong military heritage during this year of sesquicentennial celebrations.

Keep the Celebrations Going

Festivities will continue throughout the Canada Day weekend with live entertainment and family activities in partnership with Promenade Days
