Canadian Multiculturalism Day Celebration at City Hall

320 Esplanade, Sydney


Canadian Multiculturalism Day celebrations return to the Cape Breton Regional Municipality on Monday, June 27, at City Hall, as part of the Canada wide day marked to celebrate and reflect upon the wealth of diversity that enriches our society. With music, food, art, and more, the event will explore the elements of what makes culture and celebrate the people of our community.
The event will begin at 5PM with the raising of the Multiculturalism Day flag at City Hall. From the stage, there will be music and performances including Newfoundland Ukranian Speed Folk ensemble Kubasonics, Mik’maq hip hop artist Shift from tha 902, and celebrated celtic folk duo Colin Grant and Mike LeLievre. CBRM ConnectArts will be on hand encouraging the audience to express their idea of “What is Culture?” by painting stones that will be placed around the CBRM.
Returning this year will also be our Multicultural Food Village. Ethnic restaurants from around the CBRM have been invited to participate and will be serving their signature dishes for just $5 per serving, with the intention that guests can try dishes from different restaurants and sample tastes that they had not previously experienced. In 2019, over 500 dishes were served during the event.
Canadian Multiculturalism Day is supported by the Government of Canada and presented by the Cape Breton Regional Municipality Recreation Department. For more community programs and events, follow @cbrmgov and @cbrmconnectarts on Facebook and Instagram.
