Community Invited to Celebrate National Indigenous People’s Day

Published on: 2019/06/19 - in News

The community has been invited to celebrate the annual Kingston National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21 from noon to 4pm at Confederation Park across from City Hall on Ontario Street.

“The 21st of June is the Summer Solstice and would have been a celebrated day within most of our communities,” said Organizing Committee member Lynda Gerow. “Now, it’s a celebration of who we are in today’s world. We get a chance to not only share in the various talents both on and off the stage but we get to connect with each other and the wider Kingston community.”

Celebrate and learn about Indigenous Peoples’ culture with cultural sharing, proclamation, local drummers, singers and dancers, community booths, vendors and more.

Delicious Indigenous foods will be served while it lasts and Skeleton Park Arts Festival co-presents Canadian Indigenous musician Wolf Saga, headlining at 2pm. All of the day’s activities are free for the whole family to enjoy.
