Canada Day at the Beach!


Canadians in Orange County is thrilled to partner with the Consulate General of Los Angeles in bringing the Canadian expat community together again, right here in Orange County, to celebrate Canada Day! Zaib Shaikh, Consul General will be with us to share his perspective on the Canadian expat community and Canada’s special relationship with the USA, as we celebrate Canada Day together.

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!

Our fine partners at Air Canada proudly fly our colours and the maple leaf in their roundel. It’s times like this, when Canada is showing its national pride that Air Canada steps up and gladly flies a mountie down to be with us. Thank you for making this day special for us all, Air Canada! For those who attend, Air Canada will be distributing coupons good for a 15% discount on flights between the USA and Canada, so be sure to stop by our sponsor booth for yours!

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 site 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.
