Kambule Fest
Date: Saturday, July 1
Time: 2:00 – 5:00 PM
Where: Amos Waites Park

From the Kikongo language of the Congo, meaning Street Procession, Kambule pays homage to our African Ancestors, our forefathers, who marked the end of slavery by taking banned cultural expressions out of hiding and onto the streets.  The Kambule is a powerful manifestation of culture, spirituality, beauty, royalty, and pride. This summer Ballet Creole is partnering with Arts in the Parks to bring Kambule across Toronto.

Kambule Fest will include a musical parade, performances, dance flash mobs, and vendors at selected Toronto Public Parks in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary. Great fun for the family! For more information, visit:
