Canada Dayyc has an amazing soundtrack

With over fifty different acts taking to the stage at Canada Dayyc the unbelievable talent in our city will shine for all to see. From spoken word, beatboxing, rock, funk, hip hop, soul, line dancing, and storytelling, we’re sure the stages will keep you and your family entertained.

Prince’s Island Park will be host to three stages – Enmax Main Stage, Dominion Stage and the Family Stage. Opening ceremonies at 11:30 am will feature Calgary’s inaugural Poet Laureate Kris Demeanor, a fixture of Calgary’s spoken word, theatre and music communities. A full day of music will end off with headliner act Dojo Workhourse, a native Calgarian with a range of contemporary pop rock and blue-eyed soul.

Head over to Dominion Stage for a more intimate setting, giving you a front row experience as established and emerging artists from the genres of jazz, rock, blues and more entertain all day long. A song writer’s summit will also take place.

Right in the middle of Calgary’s very first cyclovia, when Riverfront Avenue becomes a bike path, allowing for the shared use of public space, will be RiverWalk Hotspot East on 3rd Street SE & Riverfront Avenue. Check out the Calgary Spoken World Festival Youth Poetry Slam at 2 pm. The winner of this challenge will get a chance to recite their poem on the stage at Prince’s Island Park, later on in the day. Learn the Sweet City Woman dance with Calgary 2012 – Calgary’s Cultural Capital of Canada initiative at 8pm.

The Youth Arts Stage is the perfect place to hang out by the river and take in spectacular youth talent. Due to a Spring snowstorm on May 5th during the National Youth Arts Week, the Grand Finale show had to be cancelled. The good news is the line up is now going to be able to perform at Canada Day! Our partners at National Music Centre, Fort Calgary and the East Village Street Fair will all have great entertainment line ups as well.

Whether you’re a dancer, singer or poet, – the entertainment at Canada Dayyc will have something for you!
