The 35th annual Guelph and District Multicultural Festival begins on Friday evening with a whole weekend of virtual events planned.
Pre-recorded and live events include performances and cooking shows along with activities for children and arts and crafts.
The festival was cancelled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but organizers were able to put together an online festival in March.
Originally, plans for the upcoming festival involved in-person events at Riverside Park, but with COVID-19 still present and current government restrictions, the festival will once again be online.
Friday’s opening ceremony begins at 6 p.m. and the evening will include a harp performance, a cocktail demo and live reggae music.
More information on the weekend can be found on the festival’s website.
