City of Prince George Unveils its Canada 150 Lineup

Friday, May 19, 2017 @ 10:00 AM

Prince George, B.C. – July 1 to 8 will be party time in Prince George.

Today the City unveiled its Canada 150 lineup made possible in large part by $276,000 in funding from the federal government’s Community Fund for Canada 150.

All of this of course to help commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday this summer.

It will include a free, eight-day outdoor music festival, two mural projects, and a variety of other community events.

The music festival – coined Canada 150 Heatwave – will feature local, regional, and nationally acclaimed artists and musicians in Canada Games Plaza for lunch-time and evening concerts (for a full list of entertainment, see below).

The events will be presented by the City, the Prince George Community Foundation, the Community Foundations of Canada, and the Government of Canada.
