Lineup Announced for Capital City Canada Day Evening Show
Posted on 06/16/2020

 Celebrate Capital City Canada Day by tuning in to #ohcharlottetown, a dynamic, online production jam-packed with local performers, chefs, and specials guests, hosted by quick-witted Island comedian Patrick Ledwell.

The evening show, produced in conjunction with Furrow Studio and award-winning producer and music director Colin Buchanan, will air on July 1 at 7:30 p.m. (ADT), featuring musical performances by Paper Lions, Irish Mythen, KINLEY, Vince the Messenger, Tiffany Liu, and the Mi’kmaq Heritage Actors.

Celebrity Chef Ilona Daniel will lead a series of culinary segments featuring Chef Cordell Wells, and culinary students Sasha Burkitt and Caleb Gallant. Together, they will make some of their Island favourites including Acadian and Mi’kmaq dishes using local ingredients.

“Celebrate Canada Day at home in the Birthplace of Confederation with this stellar lineup of local talent,” said Charlottetown Mayor Philip Brown. “It may not be our traditional celebration, surrounded by friends, family, residents and visitors, but we can join together virtually through this Canada Day programming, whether we are watching from the comfort of our own homes, tuning in with a small group of friends, or enjoying the entertainment while sitting around a campfire.”

#ohcharlottetown follows the previously announced daytime production, “WHOA, CANADA!” with Silly Robbie & Friends – a high energy celebration hosted by children’s entertainer Silly Robbie and featuring musical performances by The Music Man – Michael Pendergast, a guided science experiment with Mad Science of the Maritimes, craft time with local artist and art educator Jessica Sheppard, a baking segment with Chef Ilona Daniel, as well as story time with Mayor Brown and mascot Charlie Town. The family-friendly production will air at 11 a.m. (ADT). Both professional videos will be posted on the City’s website at www.charlottetown.ca/CanadaDay, on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CityofCharlottetown, and YouTube at www.youtube.ca/CityofCharlottetown on July 1.

“We would be remiss if we did not thank the Government of Canada whose financial support has made it possible to deliver our 2020 Capital City Canada Day programming,” said Councillor Kevin Ramsay, Chair of the City’s Economic Development, Tourism and Event Management committee. “I’d also like to thank the production team and our City staff for the work they put into making sure we have an entertaining show for the whole family despite the reality of our current circumstances.”

2020 Capital City Canada Day celebrations will also include a special Canada Day photo mosaic, a home decorating contest with awesome prize packs, and plenty of other ways to interact with one another across the City’s social media platforms. For details, visit: www.charlottetown.ca/CanadaDay.
