Carrousel of the Nations 2014
Jun 13 to Jun 15, Jun 20 to Jun 22, Jun 27 to Jun 29
For 39 years the Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County has dazzled us with the Carousel of the Nations. From those humble beginnings in 1974 to 2013, where West Jet named Carousel of the Nations as the 2nd favourite festival in Ontario and 5th in Canada and Festivals and Events Ontario named Carrousel in their top 100 festivals, we are proud of this great tradition in our community.
The Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County invite you to continue the experience with the 2014 Carrousel of the Nations! Delight in the tastes, sounds and traditions of an array of cultures at our kick-off weekend Carrousel by the River on June 13-15, 2014. This iconic festival has something for everyone including cultural cuisine, world music, eclectic art, and ethnic dance representing dozens of different cultures and all at one location Riverfront Festival Plaza on Riverside Drive at the foot of Goyeau Street in Windsor, Ontario. Visiting with kids? Don't forget to visit the Children's Village filled with entertainers, dancers, games, crafts, music and surprises to delight the youngest members of the family.
Over the next two weekends June 20-21 and 27-29, 2014, ethno-cultural groups open their cultural centres in celebration of their home country. Visitors can delight in the tastes, sounds and traditions of these cultures and help celebrate the fusion of cultures represented in the area.
