The DiverseCity Festival, PEI’s celebration of Canadian multiculturalism and inclusion, and a project of the Immigration & Refugee Services Association PEI, returned to its full, free festival format in Charlottetown in June and will continue in four more locations across PEI in July.
IRSA Executive Director Bernadette Reynolds says, “The DiverseCity Festival is a great way to spread our mission to support immigrants and refugees in their efforts to settle across Prince Edward Island, while also celebrating Canadian Multiculturalism.”
Upcoming Festival dates and locations include Alberton on July 3, Abram-Village on July 10, Summerside on July 24, and Montague (Three Rivers) on July 31. Each location will feature continuous stage performances, demonstrations, cultural displays, information booths, games and activities, and ethnic food vendors.
Festival Manager Mark Carr-Rollitt adds, “In partnership with Eastlink Community TV, we will also produce a four-part video presentation which will be broadcast and streamed in September.”
Admission is free and all sites are fully accessible.
