Multicultural Canada Day Festival 2016
Start date: 1 July, 2016
End date: 1 July, 2016
Presented by the New Canadians Centre, the Multicultural Festival has grown over the past five years to attract more than 10,000 people to Del Crary Park in the heart of Peterborough. This year, more than ever, we wanted to ensure we provided our community with a warm, engaging and vibrant festival with the messagefor our newcomer families, many who have recently arrived from Syria.
Leading up to the actual day, we launched our organization's first peer to peer fundraising appeal, "theChallenge - we gave up something in support of people who had to give up everything." Our target was $3,000 - we are more than halfway to our goal with just a few days left.
Our media launch on June 16 shared this story as well as the fact we hoped newcomers would feel the support and solidarity from our organization as they resettle and call Peterborough home.
