Cana­dian R&B queen Jully Black, singer-song­writer Sarah Slean and Juno-win­ning blues­man Steve Strong­man will be among the per­form­ers at Hamil­ton’s July 1 Canada Day sesqui­cen­ten­nial cel­e­bra­tion at Bayfront Park.

“Hamil­ton joins cities across the coun­try to cel­e­brate Canada’s 150th year as a na­tion,” Hamil­ton Mayor Fred Eisen­berger said in a state­ment.

“This im­por­tant an­niver­sary of­fers us all a chance to re­flect on our city’s con­tri­bu­tions to the growth of our na­tion, from our proud in­dus­trial roots to the ex­cit­ing re­vi­tal­iza­tion trans­form­ing our city.”

The party gets un­der­way at 3 p.m. at Bayfront Park with food trucks and en­ter­tain­ment and con­tin­ues un­til 10 p.m., con­clud­ing with fire­works fi­nale set to an or­ches­tral ar­range­ment per­formed live by Boris Brott and the Na­tional Academy Orches­tra.
