2020 Schedule

Friday, June 19 | Songs of the Workers
The comradery built through music holds a special place in the events of the annual Miners Memorial celebrations. This year you can enjoy the Songs of the Workers playlist from the comfort of your home, assembled by the local musician community here in Cumberland and the Comox Valley area. The playlist will be launched on June 19th with all donations directly supporting the contributing musicians. Link coming soon.
Saturday, June 20 at 10 AM | Live-streamed from the Cumberland Community Cemetery
Saturday, June 20 at 11 AM | Live-streamed from the Japanese Canadian Cemetery

At both graveside ceremonies, the Miners Memorial Working Committee will share contemporary and historical writings, music and reflections about workers in these unparalleled times, and lay flowers on behalf of the collective community that marks this event each year.

We do ask that you plan to participate this year by joining us online and not in person. We look forward to a time in 2021 that we can all come together.
