The International Culture Fest on Saturday, October 12, 2019 at TD Station was a wonderful success. Here are some of the highlights and experiences which those who attended were witness to!

Culture Fest was a perfect space to launch our new Grocery Marketplace

Culture Fest featured artisans, performers and food vendors from the far reaches of the world. Food vendors served food from Ghana, Egypt, Cuba, Nigeria and Madagascar. The artisans sold handmade African clothes, Syrian decorative boxes, knit fashion and more. Entertainment included Bollywood Dance Inc., West African dance, Palestinian dance and local Highland Dance. Some generous artists even provided free Henna!

Henna designs are intricate and beautiful

Traditional coffee service was shared among new friends from Palestine and India. The open lounge was a space open to everyone who wanted to relax. They sat to enjoy music, traditional drumming or try some strong Arabic coffee.
