A major festival returns to Brampton this weekend for its 40th year of cultural celebrations.
Carabram, the city’s annual multicultural festival, will take place across multiple venues in Brampton from July 8 to 10.
Each venue will represent one or more unique cultures from around the world.
“For 3 days, experience the food served from the ‘smiling people’ of the Philippines, watch the colourful and magical dances of dragons in the Chinese Pavilion, be immersed in the colourful and vibrant atmosphere of India and feel the breeze as the steel band plays its dance luring music in the Caribbean Pavilion, and those are just some of what you can expect to experience at Carabram,” says the event organizers.
The event is free for all children 12 and under.
Six venues in Brampton will offer the food and traditions of the following cultures:
Century Gardens Rec Centre: Africa, Caribbean, China, Philippines, Pavilion of Cultures (Portuguese, Peruvian, Nepal, Lebanese, Colombian, Ukraine, Mexican)
Jim Archdekin Rec Centre: Hawaii, India
Loafer’s Lake Rec Centre: Punjab
