Support Healthcare Workers

As well, we would like to thank all the essential workers. This is the perfect opportunity to thank them as one heart, one nation, one world.

While celebrating Canada Day, we encourage you to donate to The Frontline Fund to support frontline healthcare workers. Please fill in CDDC2020 under COMPANY NAME/GROUP so that Frontline Fund can provide us with the total amount raised. A tax receipt will be sent to donors from Canadahelps.org via email.

Canada Day Drumming Celebration

Canada Day 2017 not only marked the nation’s 150th birthday, but also a historic moment of the first ever simultaneous drumming across Canada!

On July 1st, 2017, drummers across five time zones and the eight Canadian cities drummed simultaneously to celebrate Canada’s birthday, multiculturalism, and diversity. Everyone was welcome to drum for six minutes across Canada as the event was broadcast live on social media platforms.

In 2018, we brought the Guinness World Records™  for “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle” to Vancouver. This historic event not only achieved a breaking record but also symbolized the unity of Canada and the celebrate Canada’s birthday. The celebration took place in 13 cities across Canada.

In 2019, drummers across 5 time zones and 11 Canadian cities attempted to bring the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ of “Largest Group Drum Roll (multiple venues)” to Canada and
Participants in 13 Canadian cities across 5 time zones drummed simultaneously to celebrate Canada’s birthday.

The Legacy 150 Celebrations Society is excited to be hosting an even bigger celebration this year and we hope you will come support and enjoy all the energetic and loud drumming!
