Dartmouth celebrates Canada’s birthday with art and music

June 28, 2018 by  

The Canada Day Eve Celebration of Music and Art is taking place this weekend in Dartmouth. It is a presentation of the Downtown Dartmouth Business Commission.

Musical entertainment will be provided by nine international artists from the Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo. There will be a street party on Portland Street, which will be closed to traffic. It will feature lots of family activities and music.

Alderney Landing will host Art in the Park. It will have hands-on community art activities such as mural painting, musical entertainment, a dance station and a Canadian wildlife sculpture park. In addition, there will be an art and craft market held indoors, and over 30 artisans are expected to be on hand. Tables are available for $28 and food vendors are also welcome to apply.

Alderney Landing is also the end of the Great Race which means more than 100 vintage vehicles will be on display to the public.

The celebrations do not stop on Canada Day Eve. The Lions Club, Air Cadets and Department of National Defence will be hosting a pancake breakfast, which is free to attend.

To advertise upcoming public events in Dartmouth, local print shops are often asked to provide printed materials such as flyers.

The Canada Day Eve Celebration of Music and Art will be held from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. Admission is free. To learn more, contact Lee Cripps at 902-461-4698.
