CPAC Summer Festival, one of the biggest outdoor event in Chinese Community celebrating Multiculturalism and Canada Day, is happening again for the 14th year in a row next Saturday, June 24th, at the Albert Campbell Square of Scarborough Town Centre.
Last year, thousands of local residents were attracted to the festival by its offer of folk art, authentic cuisines and quality family time. In 2017, the CPAC Summer Festival celebrates Canada’s 150th birthday with even more attractions, including a larger variety of vendors and tons of prizes and giveaways.
Founded in 1992 as a not-for-profit organization, one of CPAC’s mandates is to help new immigrants with cultural integration and civic engagement in Canada. By organizing the Summer Festival, CPAC hopes to achieve this goal by providing a platform for the newcomers to socialize with local residents and promoting global awareness.
“We gather together on this day to enjoy the summer while celebrating the diversity of cultures that Canada embodies. At CPAC, we strive to curate the activities so that they showcase a fuse of valuable heritages, providing the GTA community with a memorable and unique experience,” said Mr. Eric Xiao, President of CPAC.
As always, the festival will be a free, all-ages party of cultural performances, games and a vendor market. Children can participate in athletic activities like three-legged races with their parents, or they can also choose to showcase their artistic talent at the arts and craft booth. To make things even more exciting, face painting and bouncy castle are also available. Parents will enjoy shopping at the market area, where various vendors offer flash sale of brand-name products, decadent cuisines and much more. The stage will showcase talents from the communities as well as professionally trained performers. Performances arrange from traditional folk art such as opera, martial art, dance, to more modern entertainment such as belly dance, circus, and fashion show, as well as magic show for children. There is something for everyone at the Summer Festival.
