We would like to thank everyone who braved the overcast skies and rain to come out on July 1st to support our annual Multicultural Canada Day festival. We hope you had a great time! Many thanks to all the volunteers, performers, technical crew, and vendors who helped to make this day such a success!
We would also like to thank our generous sponsors, without whom this festival would not be possible: Canadian Heritage, Community Foundation of Greater Peterborough, Peterborough Community Savings, the City of Peterborough, Carmela Valles Immigration Consulting, Healthy Kids Community Challenge, Country 105 and Energy 997.
Each year the New Canadians Centre brings together a fantastic group of international food and craft vendors and stage performers from around the world- all celebrating the rich cultural diversity of Peterborough and Canada.
We invite you to join us on July 1, 2017 in Del Crary Park for Canada’s 150th birthday for an even bigger and better Multicultural Canada Day Festival.
Check back next spring for event details!
