Chard joins in as Victoria Celebrates Canada Day 2016!

Chard is proud to once again sponsor the City of Victoria’s annual family-friendly, multicultural celebration of Canada Day. To celebrate Canada’s 149th birthday, the City has announced an impressive line-up of performances, family-friendly activities, multicultural programming, an international food village, and stunning fireworks over Victoria’s Inner Harbour on Friday, July 1, 2016.

Sponsors and children’s activities will return to Belleville Street with plenty of interactive fun for the whole family. Vancouver Island-based three-time Juno nominated children’s band The Kerplunks will engage audience members of all ages on the Main Stage in the early afternoon.

The ever-popular Coast Capital Living Flag will take place on the Legislature Lawns, with 1,500 free red and white T-shirts available. The goal is to exceed last year’s Living Flag participant count of 2,500.

Main stage performances on July 1 will transform the Legislature Lawns into a one-of-a-kind multicultural concert experience. Headlining this year is Quadra Island’s own infectious five-piece Indie rock band, Mother Mother. Other highlights include 2014 Juno Award winner for Aboriginal Album of the Year, George Leach.
