Happy 10th Anniversary Harmony Square!

Happy 10th Anniversary Harmony Square!

"If you build it…they will come."  This quote from Field of Dreams has always been a beacon of hope, of possibilities. Sometimes we cross our fingers and wish for the best, but when you put time, energy and an incredible amount of determination into a project, you achieve success. Brantford’s downtown Harmony Square is a shining example of this philosophy and from June 8th to 10th, 2018,  we celebrate what has become the gathering place for community pride and incredible events.
 
Harmony Square has set the stage for some exciting community festivals and events. Some of the most memorable have been: 2010 Olympic Torch Relay Celebration, 2015 Pan Am Torch Relay Community Celebration, the live broadcast of The Tragically Hip final concert and the events we look forward to every year – the Brantford International Jazz Festival and the Chili Willy Cook-Off. Harmony Square also features annual free programming with Frosty Fest, Movies in the Square, Music in the Square, Chess in the Square and Brantford Has Talent.
 
Even with all these exciting things to do at Harmony Square throughout the year, it’s also a place to relax and take a few moments to enjoy the family friendly space. The splash pad in the summer is a great way to enjoy the sunshine and cool off at the same time. And in the winter, the space is transformed into a frosty wonderland with an ice rink for enjoying one of the great Canadian pastimes.
 
Harmony Square has given the city of Brantford a lot to celebrate…and now it’s time to celebrate Harmony Square!  Join us as we celebrate its 10th Anniversary with "Find Your Spirit", a weekend-long celebration honoring the 10 years of history the square has to offer.
 
The festival will run Friday June 8th at 8:30 p.m., Saturday June 9th 12:00 noon–10:00 p.m. and Sunday June 10th 12noon–4:00 p.m. Featuring many free activities that are sure to please everyone, it’s an event not to be missed. Come join in the fun with activities planned for the event.
 
The main highlight of the weekend will be to showcase what Harmony Square does best…live entertainment. Performances on two stages will keep you entertained all weekend with a featured concert Saturday night by Canadian legends Spoons followed by fireworks (who doesn’t love fireworks?!). And on Sunday, a Grand Finale orchestrated by Brantford born Debra Brown, Emmy award-winning choreographer for Cirque Du Soleil.   To see a list of all the family-friendly activities taking place over the three days, click here to open a new page.  
 
As if this isn’t enough excitement to celebrate the Find Your Spirit 10th Anniversary, Harmony Square will be introducing the new squirrel mascot to the community and you get to vote for its name. This loveable character will soon become a great addition to welcoming everyone to Harmony Square programming. 
 
To all those who have made Harmony Square the great success that it is, we thank you. But the biggest thanks of all goes to the community, who attend Harmony Square events, support the programming and prove that this incredible space that was built downtown is THE PLACE TO BE!
