|Year / Decade Made|
The 1967 International and Universal Exposition, also known as Expo 67, was a Category One World’s Fair. The event was held in Montreal, Quebec from April 27th to October 29th. Expo 67, which was one of the most successful World’s Fairs of the 20th century, created a single-day attendance record for the events with 569,500 visitors on the third day. The fair had sixty-two nations participating. Montreal’s mayor championed the event which was not well supported. There was even a computer analysis stating the fair could not be done, however, the leaders of the fair pulled through and it started on time. Expo 67 was initially supposed to be held in Moscow in order to contribute to the Soviet Union’s celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Due to the Soviet Union’s cancellation, Canada was selected in 1962.
