With the theme of bringing people together, an upcoming festival this summer celebrates diversity and inclusion in Peterborough.
“This family-friendly event with the theme #bringpeopletogether is a well-loved celebration of community, diversity and inclusion,” The New Canadians Centre says.
The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 3.30 p.m. at Del Crary Park on July 1.
The event, which typically draws more than 10,000 community members, features craft vendors, family activities and a variety of performances on stage. Visitors can also sample fare from an array of food vendors.
The New Canadians Centre strives to empower immigrants and refugees to become full and equal members of Canadian society and to provide community leadership to ensure cultural integration in a welcoming community.
Since 2015, The New Canadians Centre has welcomed more than 220 refugees from Syria to Peterborough.
The non-profit organization has been providing services in the Peterborough community since 1979.
We can chip away at telling the stories, like this one, of Another Peterborough on our own but we could really use your financial support.
