This Canada Day (July 1), the 1200 block of Hamilton Street in Yaletown will be closed to traffic for an Olympic-style street party with live music, food and fun competitions to celebrate The Yaletown Grandprix with racing set to start at 1pm.
10+ local acts including The Kemal Evans Band, Sam Mackay, Keys To Phoenix, Michale Aot, Cindy-Lou Potter, The Sicks, Jessica Vaira, Dan Pangman, The Miss Emily Millen Band, and DJ’s Rico and Kate Matthews Music will start at 12pm and will go to 9pm, located on the MAIN stage next to the party’s host, SOCIETY on Hamilton Street.
There will also be some great contests throughout the afternoon with competitions between businesses on the street and with the crowds:
Oyster shucking competition
Yaletown’s Best burger competition
Marshmallow golf tourney
Street hockey tourney in the 1000 block of Hamilton
I will be judging Yaletown’s best burger competition along with Richard Wolak from Vancouver Foodster, Erin Ireland from It’s To Die For and Raul Pacheco-Vega from Hummingbird 604. As many of you know, I love burgers and when the Global Group asked me to be a judge, I jumped at the chance.
If you’re looking for some fun activities to do on this Canada Day, the Yaletown Block Party is the place to be. See you there!
