Huron Multicultural Festival expanding

The Huron Multicultural Festival is returning this year, expanding to a two-day event.

It will take place in Courthouse Park in Goderich, beginning Friday, June 28 with a concert.

Rocking the square will be 2023 Canadian JUNO Award winner Digging Roots, with Drives the Common Man opening.

The next day, on Saturday, June 29, a family-friendly event will take place in the square, featuring food, dances, a marketplace, children's activities, and a licensed beer garden.

"I think music and dance, art, and food are a way that we can really foster understanding, respect, and appreciation for the many cultures that enrich our community," said Karen Stewart, cultural development officer. "It's always important to celebrate with customs and traditions, break down barriers, and build understanding."

Stewart added that many new community members are coming to Goderich, allowing the county to appreciate them.

Tickets are available for the concert here. The gates open at 6 p.m. with the show starting at 8 p.m. on June 28.

Saturday begins at 12 p.m. running until 6 p.m.
