It’s Fiesta Week in Oshawa, which can only mean one thing, party time.
Fiesta Week, presented by the Oshawa Folk Arts Council, is back June 17 to 23 in Oshawa.
The annual multicultural family festival, presented by the Oshawa Folk Arts Council gives Durham residents a chance to experience cultures and foods from around the world, without having to get on a plane.
A tradition for over 40 years, it was rated as one of the top 100 festivals and events in Ontario last year.
Fiesta Week kicked-off on Father’s Day, June 17, with the Fiesta Parade, followed by the Fiesta Concert in Memorial Park.
Through the remainder of the week, ethnic pavilions across the city opened their doors offering people the chance to experience their art, heritage, food and dance.
