The City has some special activities and events taking place in our community to celebrate this milestone year. Find out more below....
Canada Day - Saturday, July 1, 2017
The City of Steinbach teams up each year with the Mennonite Heritage Village to create a full day of family-friendly celebration activities for Canada's birthday. MHV offers free admission and has activities and entertainment throughout the day. Families can then head to the Steinbach Soccer Park for evening activities including a music DJ and free cupcakes and Canada Day souvenirs. The day ends with a fireworks finale starting at 10:45 p.m. This year's fireworks display will be extraordinary in honour of Canada's 150th Birthday!
Prime viewing locations for the fireworks will be in the Soccer Park, Southland Church parking lot, L.A. Barkman Park (Abe’s Hill) and along McKenzie Avenue and Bush Farm Road.
Please note for safety reasons, the pathways between Bush Farm Road and the Soccer Park will be unavailable for public use from 8pm - midnight on July 1st.
Happy Birthday Canada!
November 2016, more than 600 residents helped to create Steinbach's community mural, commemorating Canada's 150th birthday. Since its creation, the mural has been on display at the Community Plaza, City Hall and Mennonite Heritage Village. It now resides permanently at the Jake Epp Library, on the exterior northeast wall, by the front entrance. This location provides some shelter from outdoor elements and allows the public to view it anytime they wish.
