Canada Day Community Stage headliner Tiny Islands brings Mardi Gras music and fun to Jubilee Park

The Community Stage will be bursting with activity and brilliant performers at the Canada Day Celebration in Jubilee Park on July 1.

Masterful musicians Nathan and Tim Sars External, aka Tiny Islands, will engage music lovers of all ages with irresistible tunes by jazz greats like Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and Fats Waller. Performing their show, At the Mardi Gras, once in the morning and twice in the afternoon, Tiny Islands take the wonderfully spirited music of the 1920s and ‘30s and make it fun for kids and their families. And there's no better way to introduce young people to an exciting variety of instruments than through the upbeat, can't-sit-still, world of jazz! Audiences will enjoy clapping along, singing along and getting up on their feet to dance.

Other talented Alberta artists will also share the Canada Day Community Stage. Seventeen-year-old country musician and rising star Olivia Rose External, high energy funk-pop group Carter and The Capitals External, Blues and rock singer Kimberley MacGregor External and country singer-songwriter Steve Newsome External will perform throughout the day.

Rounding out the Community Stage line-up for the day will be performances by local dance schools and a cheer team. Deep Blue Athletics External will get everyone going and pump the energy up in the morning and students from the Dance Place External and Ward School of Dance External will wow everyone with their incredible moves in the afternoon.

The Community Stage is nestled between two hills in the center of Jubilee Park. It has lots of grass seating available and some picnic tables nearby. Performances will run from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., with a break at 11 a.m. when the official Canada Day ceremony is taking place on the Mainstage.
