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.
This year, The Legacy 150 Celebrations Society is working on executing the Canada Day Drumming Celebration 2018. The celebration will take place through nine regions in Canada, including Halifax, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver. Each city is going to hold their own celebration and will drum together on July 1st, 2018.
With the support from all regions, the celebration in Vancouver, BC, attempted a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ title for “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle” (single venue).
In 2018, we will once again attempt to set the Guinness World Records™ for “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle.” This historic event will not only achieve a breaking record but will also symbolize the unity of Canada and the celebrate Canada’s birthday.
We are 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!
