Summit Shows Canada started in 2017 following Chris' successful re-birth of Chatham Canada Day (Canada 150) which would later become a part of Festival of Nations.
For almost 18 years Chris has been involved in events in Chatham-Kent, starting as a DJ at the age of 11. After Highschool, Chris started Glassford Productions (Audio and Lighting) and toured with local Ribfests and events to provide stage set ups.
Chris was mentored by London's Family Shows Canada owner Doug Hillier, and in 2019 Chris started Leamington Ribfest and Art in the Park Chatham.

Holt is our resident sound technician and lighting technician, and will be in charge of the stages for most of the 2022 events. Holt is also Chris' best friend, and has invested not only money, but time and effort into the events over the years to help build a future for both Summit Shows and Caron Productions.
