“The past 15 months have been incredibly difficult for many Canadians, and we wanted to give everyone the opportunity to come together as a country under one ‘virtual’ roof,” said Kevin Goodman, director of entertainment at FRC Marketing. “The Summer House Party will do just that. It’s about bringing together everything Canadians love about summer and music festivals into one experience that we can all enjoy for a good cause, all while staying safe at home.
