Extravaganza (n): any lavish or opulent show, event or assemblage...
Harbourfront Centre celebrates 40 years of artistic creativity and innovation through a festival of extravagant proportions!
Canada Day Extravaganza is an elaborate, weekend-long birthday party showcasing Habourfront Centre's creative legacies. Bringing together some of the visionary artists, ideas, projects and communities that shaped the past 40 years, together with a revitalized waterfront "home," our Canada Day Extravaganza will set the stage for a future Canada.
Experience how Harbourfront Centre helped shape what it means to be Canadian through a lavish weekend filled with spectacle: from our tributes to past decades and how they defined us; reunions and re-imagining musical genius; random acts of 40; Canadian food fantasies of pork dishes, pie, butter tarts and more, to the creation of a human Canadian flag and what it means to be Canadian.
There are times that call for serious reflection upon our legacies, but this festival is meant as a time for everyone to join in and mark a moment. Celebrate, commemorate and move forward with exuberance, hope and inspiration. It's time to experience and enjoy the spectacular creative legacies that define our future!
