The Canada Cultural Booth at the Raleigh International Festival was a success again this year. We could not have done it without the partnership of the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta, the sponsorship of RBC Bank and the enthusiasm and dedication of our wonderful Canadian volunteers. THANK YOU!
Our first day at the Booth started with pomp and circumstance with the visit of Consul General of Canada Nadia Theodore and Ash Miller, Political and Economic Relations Officer. Take a look at some of the photos of this morning’s activity at the Canada Booth.
Many thanks to all our volunteers who hosted today. Please send along your photos!
Take a look at the few pics of the booth setup today. Thanks to Gary, Denise and Caroline (and a few passers-by) for getting everything ready. We even had a couple of visitors drop by to “spend winter in Canada” in front of our super mural! (We think that’s going to be popular!)
Canada will be represented again this year at the Raleigh International Festival on Oct 26-28. We invite you to drop by the Canada Cultural Booth to see how we’ve interpreted this year’s theme, Celebrations Around the World. (You might want to wear a tuque or mukluks!) We have a wonderful team of Canadian volunteers ready to welcome you on all three days of the festival.
There will be dancing, music, culture, food and much more! Join us on Friday, Oct. 26 (10:30am – 10pm), Saturday, Oct. 27 (10am – 10pm) and Sunday, Oct. 28 (11am – 7pm). Visit the Raleigh International Festival website to purchase tickets or view the schedules.
The Canada Cultural Booth is organized by Canadian Network of North Carolina in partnership with the Consulate General of Canada in Atlanta and the generous support of RBC Bank.
There are only four volunteer opportunities left at the Canada Booth during the Raleigh International Festival on October 26-28. Canadians of The Triangle who are interested in hosting the booth at one of these times should use our Eventbrite page to register and find more information.
