Calling all western martial artists and friends of Duello! If you’re a student, member, former student, or sword fighting friend of Academie Duello we want you to join us in the Canada Day Parade on July 1st!We’ll supply anything you need!
Help us reach our goal of 100 paraders this year!
Sword fighters, archers, bartitsu practitioners, stage combatants, mounted combat practitioners, etc are all invited to represent as we fight and perform our way through the streets of Vancouver!
We will be meeting at Duello at 4:00pm to gather equipment and gear. At 4:45pm we shall leave Duello and head to the muster spot that shall be assigned to us. Parade marchers (which is us!) need to arrive between 5pm and 6pm at our location. The parade starts at 7pm and last year’s parade began at Broughton and West Georgia, travelled east, and then travellled North down Granville St. with dispersal on Hastings St. between Granville and Burrard.
Keep in mind that we shall be mustering at Duello while our archery program is having their open range time. We will have all equipment (masks, gorgets, gloves, personal weapons) in the museum area of the salle so that you don’t have to walk into the range. If there is anything special that you need, please come into Duello before the open range (which starts at 3:30pm) to grab it, or call ahead and let us know.
We can’t wait to see you there!
