Multicultural Night

Join us as we showcase, celebrate, share and learn about the many cultures that are part of our history and part of our community. We will be celebrating the World in our Neighbourhood, so come in traditional dress and enjoy our World-on-a-Plate Market Supper Menu as our vendors share their heritage through their unique cuisine from Albania, Germany, India, Japan, Morocco and Syria.   Ken Shorley, our amazing local percussionist will bring us South Indian, Indonesian, Arab, Turkish and Western European  rhythm and grooves.  Meet people from around the world who make the Annapolis Valley their home.  

We will be joined by organizations who support newcomers and others who can help tell the story of our shared heritage here in the Valley. The Wong Centre and Bee Tutoring will be sharing many cultural crafts with the kids, as well as other cultural experiences. You can try a Henna tattoo and discover your name or a greeting in a new language! At the Good Food Hub kitchen, Judy Green,a raw food chef, will sample spiralled veggies with multicultural sauces and Yuki Inoue will demonstrate how to make Miso soup and Shirataki Noodle Stirfry.  This year we will also have a Human Library being hosted by YREACH, where guests of the market can ask volunteers from various parts of the world about their culture and heritage.   Vendors will also have some traditional clothing, artwork and artefacts for sale as well.  It will truly be a night to celebrate our beautiful world in our beautiful neighbourhood.
