The 5pm bout features The Belleville Bombshells VS Durham Region Roller Derby’s Motor City Madams. At 7pm, the Riverside Riot Squad takes on Lindsay’s Repeat Offenders.

The House PARDy is also a licensed event with special trackside seating; age 19+ access with ID.

Peterborough Area Roller Derby (or PARD) is always looking for new skaters and skating referees, with opportunities for both men and women.   The next Fresh Meat intake is scheduled to start in mid September 2017, and will cater to both absolute beginner skaters and to those who already have strong quad roller skating skills.    For more information, or to sign up, please visit PARD’s website: http://www.pard-rollerderby.com/.

Peterborough Area Roller Derby was formed on March 31, 2015 as Area 705 and Peterborough Roller Derby Leagues joined forces for the consolidation and celebration of flat track roller derby in the Peterborough Area, and incorporated as a not-for-profit in 2016. PARD works hard to promote a strong and positive image for local athletes.  Home bouts happen at the Douro Arena and Community Centre, while teams also travel across Ontario to compete.

Tales from the Trenches: WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery – July 12, August 9
6:30pm
$17
Join us for a brand-new tour, entitled “Tales from the Trenches – WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery”, written by military aficionado Don Down. 

World War One, touted as the “war to end all wars”, turned out to be devastating to many communities in Canada. 60,000 Canadian were killed in that war, with some communities losing more than half the men who enlisted.

Many of the fallen, if they could be found, were buried overseas with their comrades. But many families, dissatisfied with public monuments and unable to travel to Europe, wished to memorialize their relatives. So, they erected memorial stones closer to home. The history of these local men who served and perished in the Great War as well as those of some of the survivors become the historical basis of this tour.

Join historian Don Down to hear these heart wrenching stories of military personnel who served for Canada, some of who did not return.

Tales from the Trenches: WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery

Tales from the Trenches: WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery – July 12, August 9
6:30pm
$17
Join us for a brand-new tour, entitled “Tales from the Trenches – WW1 Soldiers of Little Lake Cemetery”, written by military aficionado Don Down. 

World War One, touted as the “war to end all wars”, turned out to be devastating to many communities in Canada. 60,000 Canadian were killed in that war, with some communities losing more than half the men who enlisted.

Many of the fallen, if they could be found, were buried overseas with their comrades. But many families, dissatisfied with public monuments and unable to travel to Europe, wished to memorialize their relatives. So, they erected memorial stones closer to home. The history of these local men who served and perished in the Great War as well as those of some of the survivors become the historical basis of this tour.

Join historian Don Down to hear these heart wrenching stories of military personnel who served for Canada, some of who did not return.

Tom Cochrane & Red Rider at Musicfest
Jul

Tom Cochrane & Red Rider at Musicfest

In 1978, Toronto band Red Rider added a new lead singer-songwriter. Nine years later the band had accumulated 11 Juno nominations and a win for Group of the Year, but it wasn’t until his solo release of “Life Is a Highway” and the album Mad Mad World – one of three Canadian albums ever to reach diamond status (over one million sold) – that Tom Cochrane ascended from what he called “manageable success” to superstardom.

The Manitoban-born Cochrane moved to Ontario during his formative years when at age 11 his bought his first guitar with money he made from selling a train set. By the 1970s he was plying his trade in coffee houses, pubs, and rough neck bars while working as a cab driver and as a labourer on shipping docks. A stint in Los Angeles was short-lived as he found his way back to Toronto. The journey to Red Rider and ultimately his solo success was paved on character building experiences along the way and as the accolades began to accrue so did the size of the crowds. “The early days never leave you though, they get etched on your soul like a tattoo.”

Being part of Canada’s collective consciousness for decades, Cochrane is a recipient of eight Juno Awards, is a member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame, the Walk of Fame, an Officer of the Order of Canada, the Order of Manitoba, former Honorary Air Force Colonel in the 409 squadron, has an honorary doctorate from Brandon University, is a recent Diamond Jubilee award, has many songwriter awards from SOCAN, CAPAC and ASCAP, and a Grammy nomination. Quite the resume. However as he puts it, “The biggest reward though is when someone comes up and says this song or that song got me through some tough times or was part of the best times in my life, or when I fell in love that was our song.”

Throughout his career Tom has thrown his support behind a wide range of worthy causes, has traveled the world, been to Africa nine times and Asia twice. He helped spearhead the Canada for Asia initiative, entertained Canadian troops in Afghanistan, raised money for Parkinson’s research, has performed at Live 8, in Tears Are Not Enough, and Young Artists for Haiti. several other causes.
A down to earth Canadian prairie boy at heart from Lynn Lake Manitoba, who came of age and started playing music in the west end of Toronto, Tom now divides his time between the tour bus, the city, and his beloved studio/retreat “Layastone” on the shores of Georgian Bay.
