Cultural Campfires have become a community favourite over the summer months. Thursday in the summer at 7 PM in Shikaoi Park, storytellers share stories from an array of cultural backgrounds around the campfire. It is a place where culture can be shared, understanding can be built, and connections can be nourished.

This is a free event; bring your lawn chair!

The campfires are designed not just to entertain community but to build community understanding, acceptance, and compassion.

LISTEN to stories from around the world,
CONNECT with people in our community,
ASK questions you may have about customs or traditions.
