The Legacy 150 Celebration Society hosted the first-ever Guinness World Records™ attempt to set the record for “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle” (single venue) on July 1st, 2017.
Although we did not achieve the Guinness World Records™ (GWR) in 2017, we did not give up. We attempted again and achieved “Most Nationalities in a Drum Circle (single venue)” in 2018 with 107 drummers from 61 nationalities.
In 2019, we want to bring an achievement that all Canadians will be able to share and be proud of. The official record attempt is “Largest Group Drum Roll (Multiple Venues)”. This record is for the greatest number of drummers performing a drum roll simultaneously at multiple venues for a minimum of 5 minutes. This record attempt calls for the participation of at least 1,683 participants.
The Guinness World Records™ attempt will take place in ten cities including Vancouver, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. The whole process will be broadcasted live on social media platforms around the world.
This historic event will not only achieve a breaking record, but will also symbolize the unity of Canada and the celebrate Canada’s birthday.
