WATCH ABOVE: NDG residents are once again partnering with local community organizations to celebrate the neighbourhood’s diversity.
Notre-Dame-de-Grâce – The sights, smells, tastes and sounds of the world were on display Sunday afternoon at Notre-Dame-de-Grâce’s (NDG) Intercultural Festival.
Residents and local community organizations came together in Girourd Park to celebrate the cultural diversity of the neighbourhood and to showcase cultural traditions from countries such as Algeria, Argentina, Congo and South Korea, among others.
Festival-goers were invited to tastings of dishes from members of cultural communities, art workshops from all over the world, a traditional costume parade, and games of different origins like Colombian Balero. And of course no festival would be complete without singing and dancing.
The festivities offer residents an opportunity to learn not only about the different communities that make NDG unique, but also the different businesses that support them.
The Intercultural Festival shared the stage with the Country en Ville festival which caters to lovers of acoustic music. Both events marked the last day of the ever popular NDG Arts Week, now in its sixth year.
