The Closing Ceremony, presented by Investors Group, will take place Sunday, August 13, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. at the Investors Group Field in Winnipeg. The ceremony will bring to a close the 26th edition of the Canada Games, celebrate athletes’ successes and pass the torch to the 2019 Canada Winter Games in Red Deer, Alberta. Titled “Grand Summer Party”, the Closing Ceremony will transform Investors Group Field into a summer festival site that will celebrate The Hottest Summer in Half a Century. The two-hour show will also celebrate the natural beauty of the province and call attention to the vibrant culture of its capital city Winnipeg.
Perennial favourite Fred Penner and Manitoba’s star fiddler Sierra Noble are among the local artists who will share the stage with Alberta’s country music sensation Brett Kissel.
Patrick Roberge Productions produced the 2007, 2011 and 2015 Canada Games Opening and Closing Ceremonies. The team will return in 2017 as the official Ceremonies Producer.
