The Kinsmen Club of Stratford will host its annual Canada Day outdoor concert and fireworks show at the Stratford Education and Recreation Centre (SERC) Friday, July 1 starting at 8 p.m. The Stratford Kinsmen have been hosting the annual concert and fireworks show on Canada Day for more than 25 years.
â€śAs part of Kin Canada, - Canadaâ€™s only all Canadian Service Club - it is part of our history and traditionâ€ť, stated Kin Bob Walters.
COVID-19 restrictions for the past two years have not allowed Kinsmen to host this celebration in its traditional fashion, making this yearâ€™s event all the more important to our community. So come on Stratford bring the whole family for an evening of community joy and national pride in celebration of Canada Day.
Beginning at 8 p.m. on July 1, residents of Stratford and area are invited to enjoy live music by local musician Steve Adair â€“ better known as Yeager â€“ and musicians Steph Selles and Colton Carter of Stelle & Carter; the music will include tunes from Tragically Hip, Neil Young and other Canadian artists. Also on hand will be local vendors Kenâ€™s Fries, Beavertails, Crazee Kernels and Dominoâ€™s Pizza and Kinsmen will have hot dogs and drinks while they last â€“ donation only, The evening will be capped off with the Kinsmenâ€™s annual Canada Day fireworks display.
Come early to get a good location to watch the fireworks, bring a lawn chair or a blanket and come early to enjoy the live music, grab a bite while you enjoy the concert and await the Kinsmenâ€™s annual Canada Day fireworks which will begin at dusk and last about 25 minutes.
The Kinsmen Club of Stratford thanks our corporate sponsor and the City of Stratford and Heritage Canada for their support. This is a free event but as always, the Fireworks portion of the event needs community support. Free will donations are gratefully appreciated. The money collected at the entrances offsets the cost of putting on the event and any surplus is put back into our community through the projects we support through our club.
Bring the whole family for an evening of community joy and national pride on July 1st!
