City of Windsor Birthday Celebration
Each year, we celebrate the City of Windsor's birthday with a Mayor's Walk along the riverfront and a birthday party. This is an opportunity to join in some free family fun and celebrate Windsor alongside citizens from all across the city.
Windsor's 125th Birthday Celebration in 2017

The event includes evening activities on both Friday and Saturday in Downtown Windsor; the Annual Mayor’s Walk along the waterfront; the ceremony for the Raising of the Great Canadian Flag at the foot of Ouellette Avenue and Riverside Drive; a First Nations presentation; a reading of the City’s Act of Incorporation; a reading from our Poet Laureate, Marty Gervais; entertainment stages; arts and activities zones; games; free admission to the Chimczuk Museum and much more!
