Canada PR 2021 - a line-up full of variety and talent!

Prescott-Russell, June 17, 2021—With Canada Day just two weeks away, the Canada PR 2021 Event Committee encourages the population to celebrate by gathering virtually on July 1st. Although citizens would have liked a physical event, nothing prevents small gatherings, in backyards and on patios, to enjoy this showcase of local talent!

Hosted by the comedy-improv duo Les Ptit’s Cousins, namely Jonathan Dion and Miguel Martin, the event will feature artistic performances from across the region. We’ve got quite a show in store for you!

The celebrations will begin at 6:30 p.m. via Facebook Live on the Canada PR 2021 event page and will be available through the various platforms of the municipalities, the Prescott-Russell Arts Council (CAPRAC) and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.

A wide variety of local talent will be presented! Damien Maze, les Rats d’Swompe, Martine Parisien, Max Richard, Gabrielle Goulet and Marie-Clo are among the artists who will perform. Residents will also have the chance to see performances by 50 Proof, Andrew Charlebois, Brian St-Pierre, JB Danceworkz, Louis Racine, Lawrence Larouche and Cynthia Martin from MAJINX, Martine Lafontaine and Noah Rivard, Natacha Jackson, Simon Cameron and Tara Shannon!

Get in the festive spirit, share your photos and show us how you’re celebrating with the #CanadaPR2021 hashtag.

O Canada Sing-Along

Oh Canada! To take part in the event, the residents of Prescott and Russell are invited to participate in a virtual choir for the interpretation of the national anthem during the unifying concert!

Whether you are alone or in your social bubble, send us a video of your interpretation of O Canada (in the language of your choice) following our instrumental track. Everyone is welcome, from toddlers to adults to families. Virtually, you’ll be joining in song with neighbours from every county! Anyone can send their clip by June 20 and find the instrumental track on the registration form:
