VANCOUVER, May 15, 2013 /CNW/ - TD will top off the summer music
festival season with its sponsorship of the Khatsahlano! Music + Art
Festival, which is considered to be Vancouver's biggest free outdoor
music event. This festival is one of a number of major music festivals
across the country sponsored by TD.
"We've been supporting music festivals across the province for years and
this newest sponsorship fits perfectly within our program by allowing
us to connect with Vancouverites through great musical acts," said Jane
Russell, Senior Vice President - Pacific Region, TD Bank Group. "With
our newly opened branch at Cypress and 4th, TD will be able to join in the festivities this year."
This year's festival, which takes place on July 13, will feature 12
stages showcasing more than 50 of Vancouver's top musical performers,
including indie acts and street performers. During the festival, local
merchants along Kitsilano's trendy West 4th Avenue will turn the neighbourhood into a 10-block street fair with
food stations, patios and curated art exhibitions for nearly 80,000
"The organizers of the Khatsahlano! Music + Art Festival are pleased to
welcome TD as its latest sponsor," said Russ Davies, CEO of the
Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association. "It's important to have the
support of major sponsors to help support artists, promote local
businesses and build strong communities."
TD's strong commitment to the local music and arts scene doesn't stop
there. For the last 10 years, TD has sponsored the TD Vancouver
International Jazz Festival, a signature music festival to the delight
of thousands of people in Greater Vancouver. TD is proud to be part of
such a well-known event that showcases the talents of homegrown artists
and notable musicians from across the country and the world.
