Sunset Ceremonies

The Sunset Ceremonies are held each year by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). This year we will be celebrating the 30th anniversary of the RCMP Sunset Ceremonies, a time-honoured Canadian tradition. At this annual event, the RCMP thanks the community for their support and offers Canadians and visitors a chance to see the world famous RCMP Musical Ride at its home in Ottawa. The event features a performance by the RCMP Musical Ride, and as the sun sets, the silhouetted Mounties of the Musical Ride line up to take part in the flag lowering ceremony and the entire audience takes part in the singing of our national anthem. This is a truly unique Canadian experience that can’t be missed.

The event is free of charge but raises funds in support of the RCMP Foundation.
