Music, food and beach action all kick off at 12 NOON until 5 PM. Family friendly!

There’s going to be Canadian music (loud and proud!), Canadian beer (plus other beers and coolers), Canadian gear (exclusive t-shirts) and… lots of Canadians, eh! Plus lots of prizes and giveaways sponsored from WKD.

A big THANK YOU to Freisenbruch-Meyer Group here in Bermuda for being our sponsor for this event!

Membership to ACIB can be purchased for $25 at the event and gets you 2 beverages of your choice and 1 meal selection from the BBQ.

Lots of drink options (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic) and food to buy at the party, so please support the ACIB and purchase your food & beverages from us at the beach.

Catering will be from Island Restaurant Group and their true summer BBQ sizzle lineup of tasty beef burgers, chicken breast burgers and hot dogs (bag of chips or spicy peanut coleslaw for side). These guys make great food and recently won Best of Bermuda’s 2014 award for BEST CATERER!

We look forward to entertaining all our Canadian, Bermudian and “everywhere-else-on-the-planet-you-are-from” Friends this coming June 27 in celebration of our national holiday, Canada Day!
