ActewAGL have sent out word that they’re putting on a do on City Walk for the exact birthday of Canberra on 12 March:

ActewAGL, Principal Partner of the Centenary of Canberra, invites Canberrans to join in raising a toast for Canberra’s birthday at a free barbecue outside the ActewAGL Assist store on City Walk in Civic from 11.00am to 1.30pm on Tuesday 12 March 2013.

The Canberra Day Toast barbecue event will kick-off with a live screening of the Foundation Stones ceremony at Parliament House, in which the ACT Chief Minister Katy Gallagher will raise a glass and toast Canberra.

ActewAGL Director Marketing and Corporate Affairs Paul Walshe said, “As Principal Partner of the Centenary of Canberra we’re pleased to put on this event, which is the ideal way for our community to raise a glass in unison to celebrate Canberra’s 100th birthday as a city.

“Local sporting celebrities will also attend the barbecue to celebrate with the community.”

Canberra residents who share their birthday with the city are also encouraged to come along to the barbecue to celebrate the special day, following a Centenary of Canberra campaign to find as many locals as possible born on 12 March.

The 12th is a work day, and the majority of peeps will be in town. The event is basically across lunchtime.

There’s free Canberra Day community toast events happening around town in addition to the Civic toast. They’ll also be at shopping centres in Gungahlin, Fyshwick, Isabella Plains, Waramanga, Hughes, Curtin, Dickson, Hackett, Kambah and Garran.

Be nice if they recognised Canberra isn’t just Civic and had this event in all the town centres ie Belco, Woden, Tuggeranong, Gungahlin etc.

I agree, they should be more small community focused with this event. For example, they should simply give me some snags and a case of beer so I can celebrate with a Canberra day BBQ at home.

Civic is the centre of town. So the sensible place for it.

Ah Toast. I met some really interesting characters there.

My dad always said that the best way to get Canberran’s out is to put on free food.
