Canada Day Concert at Swangard Stadium│Gates & Activities 5:00pm│Concert: 6:30pm│Fireworks: Dusk
The City of Burnaby is thrilled to announce that Swangard Stadium will play host to a free Canada Day concert and fireworks display on July 1 for the third consecutive year. The event marks Canada’s 149th birthday and highlights include: top-notch entertainment; activities and exhibitors for the whole family, and spectacular fireworks for the grand finale.
2016 boasts another spectacular lineup headlined by Canadian rockers The Trews. Joining them will be country/pop singer, Madeline Merlo along with Vancouver reggae band Purple Soul.
Judging by the boldness of their choices, you’d never guess the Trews are 10 years, five studio albums and thousands of gigs into their highly celebrated career. 2014 saw the release of their electrifying new disc, album The Trews. It tallies so many firsts that even the band cop to being a smidge flabbergasted by their own achievements, (16) TOP 10 Canadian radio singles (including two #1’s) notwithstanding.
The event will take place Friday, July 1st at Swangard Stadium located at Kingsway & Boundary Road in Burnaby. The concert is free to the public and gates open at 5:00pm with the fireworks show slated for dusk.
The City of Burnaby acknowledges its media partners CFOX and the Burnaby Now for their support of Canada Day 2016.
