International Festival 2017

DSCN8113The theme for this year’s international festival has been announced and it is HEROES FROM AROUND THE WORLD.

Canada has a wealth of cultural, historic, present-day and fictional heroes, but we want to hear from you about who we should feature at the Canada booth!

In March, we featured a few of Canada’s great and influential women, like Roberta Bondar (the first female Canadian astronaut) and author Lucy Maud Montgomery.  Read more here: http://www.canadashistory.ca/Explore/Women/Canada-s-Great-Women

Then, we filled you in on some Canadian superheroes like well-known X-Man Wolverine, anti-hero Deadpool and the slightly less famous but still formidable Captain Canuck: http://mentalfloss.com/article/81951/7-most-canadian-superheroes-ever

Now, let us know who your favorite Canadian hero is! Share your thoughts with us on Facebook or via email.

Canada Day 2017

July is quickly approaching and that means we’re getting excited about celebrating Canada’s 150th anniversary! Canada Day 2017 will be one for the history books and we want to know how you plan to celebrate.  Are you heading up North, or are you hoping to find some fellow Canadians to celebrate with right here in the Triangle?  If you’re going to be in town, let us know on our Facebook event so we can start planning (and make sure there’s enough Labatt’s on hand 😉).  If you’re heading out of town, be sure to share some photos with us!

Here’s some additional information on how to participate and where to celebrate in Canada: http://canada.pch.gc.ca/eng/1468262573081
