A complete schedule of events is available for download. We can't wait to see you in Canadian on the 4th!

Living In Canadian
Since its incorporation in 1908 and its founding long prior to that time, Canadian has always been a place of pride and purpose for its driven and determined citizens. In the 1985 Hemphill County History book, Tom Abraham noted, “…I know Canadian folks—they just don’t give up.” This speaks volumes about the people who have worked so hard over the past 130+ years to build this ever changing community that continues to thrive.
