2017 is the year Canada (as we know it) turns 150 years old, and the celebrations are continuing throughout the year! On Sunday September 10, members of Canada’s parliament are bringing the Canada 150 Festival to Mississauga’s Celebration Square!

The event will take place on the 10th, from 12 PM to 5 PM, and attendance is free for all. They ask for you to join them as they celebrate the 150th anniversary of confederation, with a display of Canada’s diversity.

As mentioned, the event will kick-off at noon with a series of live music and performances, as well as community groups that showcase diversity and passion, and a kids corner that will keep the little ones happy.

There’s something for everyone at the Canada 150 Festival but there’s also something you can do to support others. The parliament members are asking everyone to bring non-perishable foods to the event, which will then be donated to local food banks for the less fortunate. Donating isn’t mandatory but every little helps and even one or two cans of food could really help! So please bring what you can.

Canada’s confederation turned 150 years old in July but that doesn’t mean the festivities have to end. Continue to celebrate Canada and everything great about it on Sunday September 10th at Celebration Square, where you can meet lots of people, listen to some great music, and eat some nice food. And don’t forget to bring some cans of your own if you can! Enjoy the festival!
