For Canada Week 2021, we will be partnering again with the Bay Area community to bring you both virtual and live opportunities to kick off summer, from small to (well) medium events.
Canadians all over the world have been dealing with challenging times not only due to COVID-19, racial tensions at home and abroad, and now the horrific news coming out of Canada around the remains of 215 children found at what used to be a Residential School on Tk’emlups te Secwépemc First Nation in Kamloops. Canadian communities everywhere care deeply about equality and justice. We hope that by bringing our community together, outside of Canada, we can find support for each other.
In this update:
Moose Events for Canada Day: Get your pastrami and poutine picnic on with Augies, taste some great Canadian wines with Kascadia (ORDER BY Wednesday, June 16) and take part in the DML’s first ever Canadian vs. American Snack Off!
Other events will be coming soon to our Canada Week calendar! Today, we share the link for the Canadian Expat Meetup Group.
Royal Canadian Legion’s “Commemoration Day” on July 1st honours the Royal Newfoundland Regiment in the Battle of Beaumont Hamel during WW1.
Augies and the Digital Moose Lounge bring you… a Canada Day Picnic!
This is an exclusive event for DML members and their families. (Augies is currently closed to the public). Outdoor seating will be available for up to 24 people on a rotating, first-come first-serve basis.
DEADLINE TO ORDER WINE PACKAGE: WEDNESDAY, JUNE 16TH
This year we are delighted to mix things up with a unique East Coast vs. West Coast wine pack. We have sourced a Bordeaux red wine from the diverse province of British Columbia, and a classic Rose from third generation Italian winemakers from the Niagara Peninsula.
Included in your $65 wine package:
1.5 hrs wine tasting experience co-hosted by our Board Chair, Sarah Price and VJ Gandhi, Founder of Kascadia Wine Merchants. VJ is also a proud Canadian citizen living in San Jose, with epicurean taste and unafraid to take risks to pursue her deepest passions!
Have you ever wondered if foods and snacks taste different when made in the U.S. vs Canada? Join us for a special edition of Virtual DML Happy Hour where we’ll play a taste test game with popular snack foods from both countries.
One lucky participant will win a $50 gift pack sponsored by Canadian Food to USA. We will have plenty of time to meet other Canadians and celebrate Canada Day together!
