Carrousel@Home hosted by the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County is an online streaming event to celebrated the 45th annual Carrousel of Nations, a showcase of our region’s cultural diversity and multi-ethnic foods, taking place on June 26 & 27, 2020.
Continuing their mission of creating a welcoming community for all, the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County is excited to announce that with the support of ethnic and cultural organizations across our community, the spirit of Windsor’s longest running festival is back (and a little different) this year.
This is the first-ever social media-based celebration of local culture, showcasing many of the wonderful traditions of the cultures here in Windsor-Essex.
The event will be streamed simultaneously on Facebook and Twitch, and will be hosted by Carrousel of the Nations Chair and Multicultural Council President Allison Johnson.
Ethnic communities in Windsor-Essex will share music and dance performances, cooking demonstrations, and traditional presentations unique to their cultures. Carrousel@Home has also partnered with both participating villages and local restaurants to promote their delivery, curbside, and take-out services during the event.
Participating cultural communities include:
Polish – Essex
Polish – Windsor
Carrousel@Home will stream on Facebook Live and Twitch on Friday, June 26 from 4pm – 8pm and Saturday, June 27 from 12pm – 8pm.
Carrousel of the Nations originated in June 1974, when the Arts Committee of Windsor, with the help of a $3,500 grant from the Ministry of Culture and Recreation, presented Windsor’s inaugural Multicultural Festival. Windsor Essex is one of the most multicultural diverse communities in Canada.
