Raleigh

Sunday @ the Booth

Another wonderful day at the International Festival. Lots of Canadians dropped by the Booth and found out about CNNC. We hope to see you at our events, new friends!  Many other visitors wanted to ‘spend winter in Canada’ and get their photo taken in front of our mural. Enjoy the few pics below.

Thank you to all our volunteers who worked the booth today. Send us photos if you have any!

Come see us at the Canada Booth!

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

Booth 2017: Day 3

Another wonderful day at the Canada Booth and the last of this year’s International Festival. The combination of the colourful superheroes and the contemplative black and white didactics about the real, human heroes was a success. We got great compliments about the booth all weekend: eye-catching, educational, fun, well-designed with easy to read panels, and–most important–hosted by knowledgeable and friendly volunteers.

Here are a few photos of today’s action at the Booth.

Thank you to our superb volunteers who hosted today: Carol, Caroline, Helen, Frank, Ethan, Paul, and Gary.
