Event Details

Join us to help name a project that celebrates the canoe as part of life in Nogojiwanong.

Help us honour canoe culture with public art in Downtown Peterborough!

The Downtown Vibrancy Project led by the Peterborough Downtown Business Improvement Area (DBIA) is going to create a series of public art installations that will celebrate the Canoe, and highlight the local history of canoe travel and portage in Nogojiwanong.

We are hoping to showcase the rich history of canoes and the portage routes of Nogojiwanong as well as the history of canoe making in Peterborough.

Although the DBIA is the lead on this project, we are partnering with many wonderful local groups including; GreenUp, the Canadian Canoe Museum, Peterborough & the Kawarthas Economic Development (PKED) and Peterborough & the Kawarthas Tourism (PKT). Curve Lake Cultural Centre, Hiawatha First Nation Economic Development, local artists, curators and community members.

Food & drinks will be provided.
