Canada’s Great Kitchen Party

elevates and celebrates Canadian music


Jim Cuddy, lead singer of Blue Rodeo is the national entertainment advisor. He invites incredible Canadian talent to share the stage with him. For over 14 years, guests have been raving about their experiences with the intimate and unique combinations of Canadian talent that are put together. It’s a musical experience like no other because of the magic of the shared creativity.

The Events

The first part of the evening is all about the food. The second part of the evening is all about the music and the dancing! Sit down and enjoy some wonderful dessert and some amazing entertainment. It’s a rare treat to hear Jim Cuddy and Ed Robertson banter between song sets. Or what about hearing a classic from Chilliwack front man - Bill Henderson.

Every city has a unique combination of talent. It’s a rare treat to hear Jim Cuddy and Alan Doyle on the same stage, the magic of Bill Henderson and Barney Bentall or the unique sound of Tom Cochrane and Neil Osborne from 54-40! No matter what, it will be a night to remember!

Musicians at events have included: Jim Cuddy, Barney Bentall, Ed Robertson, Alan Doyle, Sam Roberts, Tom Cochrane, Johnny Reid, Anne Lindsay, Melissa McClelland, Luke Doucet, Danny Michel, Bill Henderson, Devin Cuddy, Sam Polley, Kendel Carson, John Mann, Geoffrey Kelly, Neil Osborne, Colin Cripps, Dustin Bentall, Miku Graham, Michael Shand and more!
