How we’re celebrating Victoria Day

Victoria Day honors Queen Victoria, who was the reigning monarch during the Confederation of Canada.

While Victoria Day officially marks the birthday of Queen Victoria (Queen Victoria’s birthday is May 24—although the holiday is officially celebrated on the closest Monday), it’s evolved into a celebration of all things Canada. There are massive parades, parties, and fireworks displays across the country—and many Canadians view the holiday as the unofficial start to summer and spend the day relaxing and celebrating with friends. Victoria Day is sometimes called May Long Weekend or May Long, since it’s a federal holiday—and schools and most businesses are closed.
