Carrousel of The Nations 2019 | Experience Windsor Essex’s Cultural Diversity
June 21, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - June 23, 2019 @ 11:00 pm
Experience the region’s cultural diversity and multi-ethnic foods during the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County’s 44th annual Carrousel of Nations at various villages in Windsor, Lasalle, and Leamington on June 14-16 & 21-23, 2019.
Over two weekends, ethno-cultural groups open their cultural centres in celebration of their country. Visitors can delight in the tastes, sounds and traditions of these cultures as they present the greatest music, dance, history, art, and especially the food of their country. One warning – once you start indulging in Polish pierogis, German sausages, Italian pasta, and Romanian pastries – it will be difficult to stop!
Four new villages have been added for June 15th in Leamington. The expanded festival now includes a new area and more cultures. In Leamington they include the Caldwell First Nation, Italian, Lebanese, and Mexican Villages.
