Canada Day at the Britannia Mine Museum

This Canada Day, head over to the Britannia Mine Museum in Britannia Beach as they celebrate our nations holiday with live music, games and unique celebrations, including a may pole dance.

The Museum’s Canada Day celebrations will feature live music from local indie folk/rock musicians, Coldwater Road, who will be performing two 30-minute sets between 11AM and 1PM. The duo is known for their rich storytelling lyrics deeply rooted in Canada’s western frontier, and their foot-stomping ballads and love songs will give visitors a reason to dance. The band will be releasing a new album this year focusing on Canadian History, including the song “The Mine and the Mill”, which was inspired by a visit to the Britannia Mine Museum.

Throughout the day Curator of Collections and Engagement, Laura Minta Holland and Assistant Curator Heather Flynn will be leading maypole dances and hosting a number of nostalgic games for visitors of all ages to enjoy.
