Team Canada Is Landing Back Home In TO This August & Throwing A Massive Drive-In Party

It will be the ultimate Canadian event with live music too!

You can celebrate all of Team Canada's wins right when they come back from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics in true gold-medal style!

CF Sherway Gardens is hosting the ultimate homecoming event on August 12 in the form of a massive outdoor drive-in party, where Torontonians can commemorate some Team Canada athletes right after they come back from the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Melissa Humana-Paredes and Sarah Pavan of Team Canada's beach volleyball team will be some of the featured athletes gracing the night's event. So far Canada has won 10 Olympic medals, all of which have been brought home by Canadian women.

There will be live performances from musicians who represent both eastern and western Canada, with JESSIA from Vancouver and Elijah Woods from Ottawa. Motivational athlete videos will also be featured that evening, and anyone who can't make the event in-person will be able to catch the show and support the athletes at home via YouTube Live.

You can buy tickets to the event as of Tuesday, August 3, and there will be a cap of 120 cars.
