SYNOPSIS: Working with the City of Richmond, John Donnelly & Associates was tasked with creating a brand new multi-cultural festival, distinctly different from similar events in the lower mainland. JD&A brought a fresh spin and programmed 'pop up' style musical, dance, and sport demos, a World of Poetry stage, 'FEAST-ival of Flavors' food truck zone with 30+ vendors, cooking demo stage, international artisan marketplace, and evening digital carnival. With Brooklyn based festival favourites Matt and Kim as headliners, the festival attracted 30,000 attendees in it's first year, and received rave reviews from attendees, council, press, and performers.

SYNOPSIS: At the request of City of Surrey, John Donnelly & Associates invited Live Nation to bring a major recording artist to Surrey. To facilitate building a concert site for international music sensation Mumford and Sons in Holland Park, JD&A developed the site and public safety plans for a sold out crowd of 25,000 attendees. Overseeing all elements of site operations, public safety, food and beverage, and merchandising, JD&A produced the lower mainland's largest outdoor concert in recent years. A flawless production, the Mumford and Sons concert was highly praised by attendees, media, Live Nation, and the City of Surrey.

SYNOPSIS: Approached by L'Oreal to create a brand activation for Diesel's new fragrance "Only The Brave" as part of the Telus Whistler Ski & Snowboard Festival, JD&A created the "Only The Brave" snowboard contest and sampling footprint with an interactive trampoline component. Converting an industrial shipping container into a sampling lounge and holding an "Only The Brave" crazy photo contest, the JD&A supplied staffing and execution for an engaging, memorable experience for festival goers and one of the most buzzed about sponsor activations of the event.

SYNOPSIS: Having created and produced the City of Surrey's Fusion Festival for five consecutive years, JD&A has seen this engaging multicultural spectacle grow from conception to a national award winning event. Held in Surrey's Holland Park, this two day event now features over thirty five cultural pavilions, four entertainment stages, a cooking demonstration tent, Parade of Flags, and some of the best international talent to be found. Headliners have included Jay Sean, Los Lobos, Bedouin Soundclash, Hawksley Workman, Jazzy B, and Arrested Development. The success of Fusion Festival inspired the recent 2012 Surrey International World Music Marathon, which JD&A also co-produced.

SYNOPSIS: Our work during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympic Games included a key role as Producer of the Surrey 2010 Celebration Site. Surrey’s magnificent Holland Park hosted an amazing series of free concerts, attractions and family fun zones from February 12 - 28, 2010. Over 300,000 people attended the Surrey 2010 Celebrations which featured 150 distinguished artists and headliners from around the world performing on two stages, with a mega-tent hosting international food pavilions, licensed areas and giant screens plus a second mega-tent hosting the RCMP Musical Ride and an outdoor action zone with synthetic ice skating, curling and sliding zones for kids.

SYNOPSIS: JD&A was selected to produce Opening & Closing Ceremonies & Entertainment Stages for the 2009 World Police & Fire Games. Over 10,000 athletes marched in to GM Place where 15,000 people attended the sold out Opening Ceremonies. A dazzling stadium production with cultural dancers, cirque performers, international headliners & SWAT teams. Over 7,000 attended the Closing Ceremonies at Swangard Stadium which included aerial displays from Canada’s Snowbirds air team.

SYNOPSIS: Vancouver Pride society asked JD&A to create a new street festival to launch Pride Week in Vancouver. JD&A created Koodo’s Big Night Out - Davie Street Pride Party sponsored by Koodo Mobile which is now an annual event. Two city blocks of Davie Street were closed as over 20,000 people attended the festive street celebration with live entertainment, vendors, colourful dancers and beer gardens.

SYNOPSIS: JD&A was awarded the contract to produce the 2009 JUNO Awards Festival for the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences. To feature WestJet Airlines as a premiere sponsor of the festival, we created the WestJet Street Party with support from Best Buy & Garnier Fructis. Two blocks of Granville Street closed for four days, where two live-stages with regional & national recording artists, vendor activation, national media outlets & beer garden, attracte over 40,000 people, generating over $500,000 media value for WestJet.
