Canada has been represented at the Raleigh International Festival every year since 2010. We host a cultural booth that interprets the annual theme of the festival as pertaining to Canada. On October 26-28, 2018, it was ‘Celebrations Around the World’ and we featured 13 different winter festivals across Canada–one for each province and territory. Visitors also greatly enjoyed our fantastic winter photo mural!
Wonderful Canadian volunteers take shifts hosting the booth during the three days of the festival. Each volunteer is given a pass that grants them free access to everything the festival has to offer before or after their shift on the day they are volunteering.
The 2018 Canada Booth was made possible in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and thanks to the generous support of RBC Bank.
