Canada Day Drumming Virtual Celebration 2020

“An All Canadian World Record Drumming Celebration”


Organized by Legacy 150 Celebrations Society, a Vancouver-based non-profit organization registered both federally and provincially, the annual Canada Day Drumming Celebration strives to deepen intercultural understanding, promote patriotism and enhance civic engagement through one of the world’s most ancient and widely-adopted art forms – percussive arts.  By uniting participants from all communities and cultural backgrounds, this event aims to celebrate Canada Day through simultaneous nationwide drumming to promote diversity, multicultural harmony, peace and love for a better world – as reflected in our mission statement.

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing, Legacy 150 Celebrations Society is moving the nationwide celebration online this July 1st. More details will be announced later.

For the past three years, we have held the celebration in 15 cities across 5 time zones with a 6-minute simultaneous drumming at 11:00 AM (PDT). This year, we have reached out to more cities and are hoping for even better participation. Visit our event detail page for participating cities.

As well, we cannot thank all the essential workers enough. The list of unsung heroes just goes on and on. This is the perfect opportunity to thank them as one heart, one nation, one world.

More details will be announced later. Meanwhile, please gather support from your local communities and make a list of who would like to participate and their contact details. Register here! Our goal is to have 1000+ hosts participating via various channels, first-come-first-served. Please stay tuned!

In a time of crisis, it is more important than ever that we wake up each day feeling connected, supported and engaged.

Thanks to the great support from professional performers and beat experts, we are able to organize drumming workshop / performance online. See upcoming workshop available, register and join us on the day to send out messages of love and compassion to our communities.

If you would like to be our volunteer performer or workshop instructor, please contact us at drummingworkshop@canadadaydrumming.com. We will try our best to accommodate your schedule while providing the tech and publicity support for free.


CDDC is trying to challenge the perception that immigrants have little to offer to the society and confront the growing trend of people retreating from community life, as we believe enhancing community engagement can help us build stronger social ties and in the long run benefit us all. Your support is vital for us to keep up the work we do and showcase the strength of cultural diversity and percussion arts to a broader audience.

As a donor/sponsor, you will also receive extensive publicity support from CDDC, including logo recognition, exhibition opportunity, promotions on the official website and all social media platforms. To request a sponsorship package, please contact us.
