This multi-artist show is live-streamed in real time, hearing directly from musical guests sharing from their own traditions. Inspired by travels around the world, Chris McKhool and friends celebrate the multicultural mosaic of our country with songs about Bodhi Day (Buddhist), Carnival (Quebec), Chanukah, Chinese New Year, Christmas, Diwali, Kwanzaa (Pan-African), Indigenous Traditions, Ramadan & Eid and Winter Solstice.

Celebrate! is a window into many cultures from around the world and provides young audiences with a glimpse into the different customs, celebrations and festivities enjoyed in Canada. Traditional and original songs by Chris encourage us to share with our neighbours and friends and celebrate together!

"This is a super exciting concert for us” says band leader McKhool. “It is an amazing opportunity to bring together incredible talent with roots around the globe, and to do some real good here at home. We will be live-streaming from Burlington Ontario, raising funds for the Burlington Food Bank and the Killarney Turtle Mountain Arts Council that supports arts snd culture in their region in Manitoba. So this is a real cross-Canada initiative!"


“Many have tried but none have come as close to capturing what it means to truly celebrate multiculturalism as Chris McKhool. The Toronto singer-songwriter epitomizes what many Canadians have come to love about this country.” – Deanne Fisher, City Parent
