Expo ’67 Montreal
The 1967 International and Universal Exposition or Expo 67, as it was commonly known, was a general exhibition or World’s Fair held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, from April 27 to October 29, 1967. It is considered to be the most successful World’s Fair of the 20th century. It had the most attendees to that date and 62 nations participating. It also set the single-day attendance record for a world’s fair, with 569,500 visitors on its third day.
Expo 67 was Canada’s main celebration during its centennial year. The fair was originally intended to be held in Moscow, to help the Soviet Union celebrate the Russian Revolution’s 50th anniversary; however, for various reasons, the Soviets decided to cancel, and Canada was awarded it in late 1962.
