Brampton to virtually celebrate Canada Day with JUNO award-winning band


This year, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Brampton will be celebrating Canada Day virtually.

The City is excited to announce that this year's headliner is JUNO award-winning band, Walk Off The Earth.

The event will take place at from noon to 10:00 pm on Wednesday, July 1.

The celebration will feature family-friendly activities, Canadian recipes, a list of restaurants offering take out and delivery options and more available online throughout the day.

A digital stage presented by Alectra, will begin streaming at 5:30 pm and will feature performances from local artists as well as the headliner, Walk Off The Earth.

At 8:00 pm, the stream will transition to CBC's nationwide online Canada Day broadcast from Ottawa.

Brampton artist Haviah Mighty will be one of many Canadian artists to perform.

Viewers can also watch an exciting fireworks experience in augmented reality.

The digital fireworks display is being sponsored by Tim Hortons and will offer residents a unique and safe alternative to traditional Canada Day fireworks displays this year.

The virtual show starts online at 10:00 pm, powered by Snapd Community Hub.

"Brampton's Canada Day celebration looks a little different this year to keep everyone healthy and safe from COVID-19,” said Mayor Patrick Brown.

I encourage everyone to visit on July 1 to enjoy family-friendly activities, cook a Canadian meal or order from a local restaurant, and celebrate our country with performances from Brampton artists and JUNO award-winning headliner Walk Off The Earth - I know my family and I will be enjoying the festivities all day long!”

Brampton Canada Day is generously sponsored by Alectra, Tim Hortons, Allstate, Algoma University and Bell.
