Events Description

The Canada Day Drumming Virtual Celebration event salutes the multicultural spirit of Canada and is moving from a nationwide to a global scale.

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.

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic and physical distancing, Legacy 150 Celebrations Society will again be hosting the nationwide celebration online on July 1st, 2021.

On Thursday, July 1st, 2021, be part of a Canada-wide attempt to set a brand new Guinness World Records™ title of: “Most People Performing a Drum Roll Online Simultaneously”.

The Guinness World Records™ attempt will be broadcasted live across the participating Canadian cities and on social media platforms around the world.

The event will run from 10 am to 12:15 pm (Pacific time), filled with virtual drumming performances and interactive workshops. Followed by celebratory simultaneous drumming across the country, the event will conclude with the announcement of the result (hopefully successful). Everyone is welcome!
