Canada Day at the Beach!
Canadians in Orange County is thrilled to play a role in bringing the Canadian expat community together again, right here in Orange County, to celebrate Canada Day! This is a family friendly picnic event at the beach, where everyone is invited; Canadians, and friends of Canadians! Pack your picnic basket, bring a cooler with something to grill, wear your favorite Canadian tee shirt, ball cap, face paint, or just wear some RED and WHITE. Show your Canadian pride to kick off the summer with our fellow Americans!

WE HAVE AN ALCOHOL WAIVER FOR OUR SITE, SO YOU CAN OPENLY ENJOY YOUR FAVORITE BEER OR WINE THAT YOU BRING AS WELL.
About The Location
This will be the 3rd year we’ve reserved a beautiful site at Doheny State Beach. We celebrate at the beach to enjoy what many of us moved here for. The sire we’ve reserved has a large paved area, with shaded picnic tables, access to sinks, and large BBQ grills, which we’ll keep hot throughout the day.
What and When
Canada Day at the Beach means you will have plenty of time to do "beach things", so bring what you would like so you can lay out and tan, surf, play frisbee, bean bag toss, toss a football, play volleyball, whatever you enjoy at the beach! We are actively planning to add organized activities, so check back for more detail.
