Canada Day Concert

This year’s Port of Vancouver Canada Day celebrations in Vancouver will be all about flashbacks to Expo 86, as Canada Place, built for Expo, turns 30 years old – and it’s all free.
The Canada Day concert will include Aaron Pritchett, Barney Bentall, Mo Kenney, Bear Mountain, Rococode, Twin Kennedy and Willa.
Other highlights will include a family-friendly licensed area, food carts, street hockey, and the traditional citizenship ceremony welcoming 60 new Canadians.
