Family fun at DiverseCity on Sunday, June 26, 4:00pm–10:00pm!
A Multicultural Street Festival held on Victoria Row and the Confederation Centre Public Library Plaza, Charlottetown
Celebrate Canadian Multiculturalism Day with DiverseCity—a family-friendly, free, outdoor, street festival! Being held again on Victoria Row (Richmond Street between Queen St. and Great George) in Charlottetown, DiverseCity is also expanded to include several new activities in tents, up on the plaza in front of the Confederation Centre Public Library.
Come and experience the cultures of recent newcomers to PEI—there will be great music, dancing, new displays and activities, Global Jam with drum circle and new intercultural combinations, visual arts display, martial art demos, kids’ crafts, and delicious international food. You won’t want to miss dancing from 8:30–10:00pm to the Count and the Cuban Cocktail and their great Caribbean sound!
DiverseCity is hosted by the PEI Association for Newcomers to Canada and is made possible through funding from the Cultural Capitals of Canada, Citizenship and Immigration Canada (Inter-Actions), Canadian Heritage (Celebrate Canada), PEI Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning (Population Secretariat), PEI Department of Tourism and Culture (Community Cultural Partnership Program), City of Charlottetown, Brown’s Volkswagen, and Downtown Charlottetown Inc., and with support from Confederation Centre of the Arts, and Tourism Charlottetown.

Note* In case of rain, as well as taking place under the tents up on the Confederation Centre Public Library Plaza, some activities will move into The Guild, corner of Queen and Richmond.
