How we keep you coming back for more.
You can’t possibly take in all Canada’s summer events in one trip.
But we can recommend some highlights. One is Montréal’s new permanent exhibition “Man and his World”. It’s more than just a sequel to last year’s Expo ’67, although a lot of Expo excitement has been retained. Plan to devote at least two or three days to this unique exhibition. Luckily, it runs all summer long, May 17th to October 14th.
Another long-running attraction for summer visitors is Ontario’s Stratford Shakespearean Festival, which opens June 17th and continues until October 12th. These two summer-long affairs can easily fit into your schedule. But when it comes to the hundreds of other shorter events, you have some very tough decisions to make. For instance, if early July finds you at the Calgary Stampede, it’s a good guess you’ll miss the Scottish Games at Antigonish, Nova Scotia, in mid-July. Pity, but you see Calgary and Antigonish are 3,136 miles apart. And if you’re out in Vancouver for the Sea Festival, July 31st to August 3rd, you’re going to have to pass up Newfoundland’s Annual Regatta, the first week in August. And that’s a shame.
It’s this nagging feeling they haven’t seen everything that bothers our departing guests and brings them back, year after year, as predictably as a yo-yo. Insidious, isn’t it?
