Vancouver, BC – Langara College is pleased to announce celebrated West Coast rock band 54-40 as the headline act at Community Day presented by RBC Royal Bank on Saturday, June 15. The iconic Canadian band will perform a selection of their hits on the RBC Main Stage to conclude the Community Day celebration.

As we celebrate our 49th year, we want to create a memorable experience for our community and 54-40 will finish the day in superb fashion,” said Lisa Fisher, Vice President, External Development. “We invite everyone to join us for a spectacular day.”
