Music to your ears…and feet: Blundstone Canada Supports Summer Festivals
At Blundstone Canada we are proud to be part of many music festivals throughout Canada. Outdoor events, great music and a love of Blundstone boots just seem to fit together seamlessly. Getting the chance to interact with event goers is always the best part.
Our timeless “boot-toss” is a staple at many events, inviting attendees to get a boot in the Blundstone bin with hopes of winning a brand-new pair. Often times to replace their older, well-used boots, or even a chance for some newbies to give the brand a try. It’s a win-win all around.
The best part of the boot-toss (other than winning some boots, of course) is that all proceeds go towards a charity or non-profit organization being supported by the event. Not only does Blundstone get to connect with some of their best customers, but everyone can feel good about where their donations are going.
Here are just a few events Blundstone Canada will be sponsoring and attending this year:
Calgary Folk Music Festival from July 26th – 29th. This year, Blundstone gave away two pairs of 4-day festival passes to our Facebook contest winners. (Congratulations to Boyd Zacher and Keri Patton!) These lucky winners also got to claim a new pair of boots! If you didn’t win the contest but managed to snag some tickets to the event, make sure you stop by the Blundstone tent for “Boots in the Bin to Win”, supported by the team at Gravitypope. All proceeds for this event go to The Calgary Folk Festival non-profit organization.
The National in Fort York, Ontario on August 4th. Run by Collective Concerts, the line up features some great music and, of course, our epic boot-toss! With the chance to win a pair of free boots, all proceeds go to Plus 1 – Partners in Health Canada. If you’re already sporting your beloved boots to the event, we have asked tattoo legend Curt Montgomery to join us and give attendees a chance to “Ink your boots.” Hanging out at the Blundstone Tent, Curt will be there to personalize your pair. Still need tickets? Keep an eye on Blundstone Canada’s Instagram Page, starting Thursday, July 26th, for a chance to win!
Arboretum Music Festival Bon-Fire at Rideau Pines Farm in Ottawa, Ontario, August 17th-18th. Here’s another change to win tickets to the epic event. Make sure you follow us on Instagram and like our Facebook Page for updates!
Rifflandia in Victoria, British Columbia from September 13th-16th. Another awesome musical event supported by Blundstone Canada. Stay tuned for more details and how Blundstone can make the most of the event for you.
Did you know that we’ve attended some other great events this year? On July 13th-15th we sponsored Rock the Shores, in Colwood, British Columbia, where we provided a few pairs of boots to get some feet on the ground. You might have noticed our presence in the event artwork. Even our friend the cool seagull sported his favourite boots.
We also sponsored Folk on the Rocks, in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories that happened this past weekend, July 20th – 22nd, and gave away two festival passes and two pairs of boots to lucky Facebook winner, Brendon Roach.
