Canada Day Cook Out: Lineup Announcement

The Canada Day Cook Out is a gigantic outdoor party with local music, food, and beer. The lineup includes Light Organ Records singer-songwriter Jessicka, Mint Records pop-punk artists Supermoon, dream pop group Jody Glenham and the Dreamers, new wave act Gang Signs, tropical indie pop band Leisure Club, and 10-piece afrobeat outfit Camaro 67. Playing between sets will be club favourites the Common People DJs.

“We’ve assembled a really diverse lineup of some of Vancouver’s best and brightest talent. There’ll be great music, food, and beer all day long,“ says Daniel Ruiz, Canada Day Cook Out programmer and drummer for Leisure Club.

In addition to the live entertainment the event will pair BBQ staples with local craft beer and beverages. Authentic Austin style BBQ with ribs, brisket, pulled pork, and chicken courtesy of Guerrila Q. In addition, there’ll be a slider competition featuring some of the city’s favourite food trucks and restaurants.

“It’s going to be an amazing day. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday then by bringing together Vancouver’s thriving live music, craft beer, and food scenes together for one of the city’s biggest Canada Day celebrations,” says Arrival Agency’s Daniel Fazio.

The Canada Day Cook out is part of YVR Food Fest. Other events include Food for Thought, a food-centric TED Talks-style speaker series (Thursday, June 29); Gather, a long table collaborative dinner with local and international culinary talent (Friday, June 30); the Street Food Showdown, a gathering of 80+ food carts, restaurants, wineries and breweries (Sunday, July 2); and the Big Brunch, a giant outdoor brunch (Monday, July 3).
