Participants would be able to enjoy virtual dance demonstrations 'Keep Rockin You' for easy to learn hip hop moves.

A virtual kaleidoscope of Toronto artists and neighbourhoods would showcase a Culture Jam from  2 to 5 p.m. with more than 35 performances in total.

The Ready for Prime Time segment including a live performance from July Talk with James Bayley and Kyla Charter from iconic music venue the El Mocambo, along with performances by Haviah Mighty and Gordon Lightfoot would be held from 7 to 8 p.m.

Participants would be allowed to sing along to Neil Young’s "Lotta Love" led by Choir! Choir! Choir! and can also download the lyrics to learn the song.

CN Tower Canada Day Light Show at 10 p.m. will be livestreamed set to the music of a diverse group of Canadian artists at the City’s YouTube channel and simulcast on CHUM 104.5.

Canada Day 2020 event has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.

Co-produced by Harbourfront Centre, the virtual event would be supported by programming partner TO Live including special project partnership of CN Tower and MAKERS.

Other sponsors of Canada Day 2020 are Toronto Regional Real Estate Board, Tim Hortons, Bell and promotional partners Citytv and TTC.
