The Viewbox has Stretch="Uniform". That means it won't change the aspect ratio of the child Canvas.

If you resize the window so that row 1 has an aspect ratio that isn't 256 × 125 (1024 × 500), then you'll end up with spaces around your Viewbox, either on the left and right sides, or on the top and bottom sides.

If you want to fill the entire background of the row, add a Rectangle to the same grid row, outside of the Viewbox, and set your fill there. You'll need to add it to the markup before the Viewbox, so that the rectangle appears behind it.
<Rectangle Grid.Row="1" Fill="Bisque" />

<Viewbox  Grid.Row="1" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Center" Stretch="Uniform" StretchDirection="Both">
    <Canvas Width="1024" Height="500"> <!-- No background colour here -->
        ...
    </Canvas>
</Viewbox>
