Join us as we celebrate diversity and come together as a community at Aurora’s Multicultural Festival.

This exciting festival will be taking place in September with In Person and Virtual Experiences. Check back here regularly for event updates.

Focusing on celebrating our community's roots while embracing new cultures, lively music, vibrant traditional clothing and wonderful dancing from around the world, this event will take you on a one-of-a-kind cultural tour; all in one location, all in the same day.

Be dazzled and awed as you experience how other cultures celebrate song and dance with a fully-packed entertainment line-up. Take your palate on a tour, sampling tastes from all over the world, attend a cooking demo and learn how to make a new dish at this free festival. Participate in fun activities you may not have experienced before, such as jousting.
