2017 RCMP Sunset Ceremonies

Canada 150 Edition

June 24, 2017 (Ottawa)



The Sunset Ceremonies is a time-honoured tradition in Ottawa, featuring a performance by the world-famous RCMP Musical Ride and the signature flag-lowering ceremony at sunset, among other activities and police displays.


The Musical Ride, with a full troop of 32 riders and their horses, consists of complex and thrilling cavalry figures and drills choreographed to music. These movements demand the utmost control, timing and coordination.


The RCMP Pipes, Drums and Dancers were proud to be a part of this Canada's 150th Anniversary celebrations event.
