The TD Bank Group is back on board as the presenting sponsor of this year’s Uptown Live summer music festival.
The TD Uptown Live Street Party will take place from noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 20 in the Uptown business district at Sixth Avenue and Sixth Street.
"As a committed and long-standing supporter of Canadian music and artists, TD is thrilled to again support the Uptown Business Association and the City of New Westminster in hosting Uptown Live," Debbie Haller, branch manager of the TD Canada Trust Sixth Street branch, said in a press release. "Supporting this festival is just one of the many meaningful ways TD is connecting communities across Canada."
Branded as New Westminster’s Ultimate Street Party, Uptown Live showcases performances from top B.C.-based indie artists on four sound stages: the Starlight Casino Main Stage at Sixth and Princess streets; the Douglas College Main Stage at Sixth Street and Fifth Avenue; the Key West Ford Stage at Sixth Avenue and Seventh Street; and the London Drugs Stage at Sixth and Belmont streets. It also features artisan vendors, interactive activities, food trucks and a service area featuring local craft beers.
“TD is a valued corporate partner for Uptown Live,” said Susan Cartwright, chair of the Uptown Business Association. “TD has a widely recognized reputation for supporting the arts in communities across Canada and we are thrilled to have TD’s continued support. This agreement helps ensure the continued growth and success of the event.”
