Expo 67

The 1967 International and Universal Exposition – or Expo 67, as it was commonly known – was a World’s Fair held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from 27 April to 29 October 1967.

The Expo was Canada’s main celebration during its centennial year, although the fair was originally intended to be held in Moscow, to help the Soviet Union celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. For various reasons, the Soviets decided to cancel, and Canada was awarded it in late 1962.
