This is a whole new level of Canada Day! A huge, iconic venue with room to expand into other spaces if required. Plus real fireworks, more music, more dancing, more fun & games, more prizes!!

Live Candian DJ's, Fireworks show 8:30pm, REAL Caesars, REAL Poutine, REAL Perogies, pancakes, cocktail specials, Canadian music, prizes, giveaways, our famous trivia (5pm start) & even Canadian beers (including the glacial Kokanee & the famous Moosehead...that's right, the Moose is Loose! as well as a bunch of other Canuck beers that'll make you homesick), the usual Candian Club Whiskey crew's fun & games. Show your Canadian and/or French Canadian colours (hockey jerseys welcome) with prizes for best dressed. Sounds awesome eh? But wait, there’s more…

Thanks to our awesome sponsors we’ve got a night full of charity raffles, free door prizes, giveaways, our famous trivia comp and fun and games.  Over $10,000 in prizes & giveaways. The grand raffle prize is a FREE TRIP TO CANADA thanks to the extremely groovy folks at Air New Zealand!

Here's the plan...

4:00pm - 8:30pm: Fun & Games!$25 Dinner Specials - $25 gets you a full “Canadian” meal (lots of options including some vege choices) AND your choice of a Canadian beer, glass of wine or softdrink. And there's plenty of other Canadian snacks, drinks & entertainment for those who don't want dinner. Kids are also welcome during this time as long as they're accompanied by a parent. There'll be $10 dinner specials for children under 12 and possibily even a "junior hockey shoot-out". However, things will get a bit racy after 7pm …

5:00pm - 6:30pm: Trivia Comp - 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!

8:30pm: special Canada Day FIREWORKS

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

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 door.

7:30pm til late, late, late: LIVE ALL-CANADIAN DJ's spinning some classic, modern and very dancy Canadian tunes.

Where?
Hard Rock Cafe Sydney (Level 2, Harbouside Centre, Darling Harbour). These guys are world class operators so expect a VERY BIG night! They've even trucked in some extra bar staff for the night as they know how Canadians party. And they've been practising and practising making Caesars.

Volunteers have more fun!
We're looking for a few hip, young, cool volunteers on the night for an hour or so. Aside from the rewarding feeling of helping out and meeting way more new people than you otherwise would, you'll also get a few free drinks! Email if interested.

FAQ's
1. Are there vegetarian dinner options in the $25 dinner/drink deal? Yes.
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 100 litres of Clamato Juice! Sounds like a lot but not when there’s hundreds or even 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. What’s Kokanee Beer? It's glacier fresh and the number 1 selling beer in British Columbia.
5. What's Dieu du Ciel? It's one of the coolest microbreweries in Quebec with crazy, yummy, brews.
6. Remember, Trivia starts at 5pm. There will be a bonus trivia question on the night and only those who read this will know that the answer is "Rob Ford is Chris Farley".
7. Can we reserve tables for the dinner special? Yes, limited seats and you must be there by 6pm.Other than that, it's first come first serve. There's hundreds of seats but it's looking like a busy night so get in early to avoid disappointment. Call Hard Rock on 9280 0077 and mention Canada Day as they normally don't take bookings!
8. 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 with room to expand into adjoining venues if required.
9. Tips for avoiding the cover charge: show up before 7:00pm. If you can't make it early, make sure you dress "Canadian"! Putting on a red shirt 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.
