Caledon Day

Caledon Day featuring The Sheepdogs header

The Town of Caledon is excited to present Caledon Day on Saturday, June 17, 2023, at the Caledon East Community Complex.

Connecting our communities since 2008, this free community event brings together the best of Caledon Day and provides an opportunity to celebrate together as a community!

Join us from 2 to 10 p.m. on June 17 for family fun including kid's activities, local vendors, musical acts, fireworks and more.

Headlining this year’s Caledon Day will be four-time Juno Award winners, The Sheepdogs, bringing their classic rock-inspired music to the party!

As in years past, Caledon Community Services will be hosting Vélocity, their annual cycling event starting from the Town Hall. Vélocity raises funds to help Caledon Seniors enjoy a fulfilled and engaged lifestyle. Start off Caledon Day with an in-person ride the whole family can enjoy. Or chart your own path from wherever you happen to be on June 17. Early Bird Vélocity registration opens on February 1, 2023!
