Musical Ride in Burnaby

RCMP Musical Ride at Swangard Stadium

Thank you for joining us on Friday, August 18, 2017 for the RCMP Musical Ride

Come celebrate Canada’s 150th and Burnaby’s 125th birthdays – and see one of Canada’s most recognized icons, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Musical Ride performing at Swangard Stadium on August 18. The evening will be packed with a variety of entertainment that includes performers, activities and displays—perfect for the whole family. 

The highlight of the evening is a unique Canadian performance that features a troop of 32 horses and riders performing choreographed cavalry drills to music. From the famous “Dome” formation, which was once featured on the back of the Canadian fifty-dollar bill, to the exciting “Charge” movement, where lances are lowered and the riders and their mounts launch into a gallop, the RCMP Musical Ride continues to be a much loved event across Canada.
