This is a whole new level of Canada Day!

Canada comes to Darling Harbour for one huge interactive night of awesome Canadian & local DJ’s, fun-games-surprises, Canadians beers & Caesars, Canadian food, REAL Poutine, $15,000+ in prizes & giveaways, fireworks and lots more.

You know how we do parties and this one goes hard! Earlier you get there the more you experience but we always go til 3am+. Famous trivia comp + game show antics starts 5pm.

Everyone who likes to party with Canucks is welcome so don’t just tell your Canadian friends.

Here's SOME of the plan (we always sneak in fun surprises)... 

4:00pm - 8:30pm: Fun & Games! - $10 CAESARS & $25 Dinner Specials til 8pm - $25 gets you a full “Canadian” meal (lots of options inc Perogies, Fatboy Burgers, Steak, some vege choices) AND your choice of a Molson glass of wine or softdrink. And there's plenty of other Canadian snacks, drinks & entertainment for those who don't want dinner. Kids also welcome during this time as long as they're accompanied by a parent. There'll be some kids meals and possibily even a "junior hockey shoot-out". However, things will get a bit racy after 8pm…

$8 MOLSON CANADIANs all night (or until we drink it dry)

5:00pm - 6:30pm: Trivia Comp & Game Shows - A few rounds of our famous team trivia from 5pm-6:30pm with over $1,000 of prizes, giveaways and other fun challenges for everyone! 

7:30pm - 10:30pm: lots of giveaways, some surprises, plus our friends at Canadian Club Whisky will be running some fun & games. 

8pm til late, late, late: LIVE CANADIAN DJ's in Cargo Bar and local headline DJ's playing Cargo Lounge with awesome music to dance, dance, dance, dance, dance... and maybe even some beer pong

8:30pm: special Canada Day FIREWORKS - best views are from Cargo's huge verandah but plenty of good viewing on the balcony of Cargo Lounge as well.

9:00pm & 11:00pm: Charity Raffles & Free Door Prize Draws. As usual, proceeds from the charity raffle are going to support local community projects of United Way. Raffle tickets will be available on the night at the raffle table located on the main level.

Volunteers have more fun!

FAQs
1. Why not July 1st which is officially Canada Day? Every year, we do this event on the Saturday before Canada Day. This gives us and the rest of the volunteers a chance to set-up without missing our day jobs, it gives those who commute from outside of Sydney a chance to make it and it lets us have fireworks!
2. What if we don’t want the dinner special? Then just come and party! Plus there’s heaps of other Canadian snacks from REAL poutine to perogies to pancakes. 
3. Are there really Caesar’s? Yes but don’t expect them to last all night.We managed to import well over 200 litres of Clamato Juice! Sounds like a lot but not when there’s thousands of people!!! ALL Caesar's will be made to the traditional Canadian recipe and all bartenders have already been educated and trained in the art. 
4. Are there really Canadian beers? Yes. There's actually 6 different Canadian beers including big sellers like Molson Canadian, Moosehead & Kokanee as well as a few boutiques like the a Dieu du Ciel Cocao & Vanilla Stout...yum
5. Can we reserve tables for the dinner specialsl? Yes, limited seats can be booked plus other seating that's first come-first serve plus we're adding more "standing tables" this year during the early parts so everyone can get into the amazing Canadian food. There's hundreds of seats but it's looking like a busy night so get in early to avoid disappointment. Book here: https:// www.thekeystonegroup.com.au /book-now/
6. Is there a door list? Nope. Just show up. It gets busy so the earlier you show up the better to avoid any line-ups (oops I mean queues). It's a huge space!
7. Can we use Cargo's outdoor spaces? YES! They aren't reall outdoor spaces as they're covered and have rows and rows of ceiling heaters and wind protection so no rain or cold will stop us! We're Canadians so it wouldn't stop us anyway.
8. Tips for avoiding or reducing the cover charge: show up before 6:00pm and it's FREE. If you can't make it early, make sure you dress "Canadian" and it'll be 1/2 price! Putting on a red shirt & a cap isn't enough but a red shirt & white pants for example should work. Canadian University stuff is also acceptable but again, just showing up with a t-shirt won't convince the bouncers.
9. Is the food really gonna taste like it does in Canada? Check out the food tasting posts. So far it's been pretty authentic and we work hard to get it right. We truck in 50 pounds of real cheese curd for poutine for example! We'll have hand-made perogies, real poutine, beaver-tails, Caesars, fatboy burgers, honey-dill chicken fingers and lots of other goodies. We got a huge amount of compliments on the food last year and we're doing even more this year!
10. Coat Check - yes there will be a coat check available on the night!
