Welcome to all our Carabram guests and friends attending this year’s festival. Everyone here at Carabram has been hard at work putting in a lot of effort to bring you an exceptional, family oriented, culturally beautiful event that we hope will impress upon you the magnificence of Canadian Multiculturalism at its best.
Each year we tell you how proud we are of our premier multicultural event and each year you respond by coming out in the thousands to embrace and enjoy the breathtaking beauty of our great nation. We are Canada!
There is nothing small about Carabram except what you have to spend to buy a passport. A meager $10 will give you full access to exotic pavilions such as Eelam, China, Africa, Nepal and India or the strikingly beautiful pavilions of Portugal, Ireland and Caribbean and the glamorous Philippines and Hawaii and there is that one special pavilion which holds an honoured place in all our hearts, Canada.
We are also so very excited to announce a new member to our family of cultures, Latin America. Latin America will be representing the colourful and mysterious splendour of over a ½ dozen cultures spreading from Mexico to the southern tip of South America.
Carabram is the ideal cultural festival for those looking to explore the world, but never having to leave town. Unlock your journey, open your passport and connect with the pavilion location that calls out to you. Enhance your cultural experience by opening yourself up to something new, something unusual and allow that experience to make your Carabram journey a special one for you, your family and friends.
Carabram offers spectacular cultural vistas, a wide variety of activities to suit all ages including our “Kids Zone”. Carabram hospitality is friendly, warm and not a myth, but a tradition with all its members and something we are proud to display. Carabram continues to showcase local cultural artists and performers sponsored by dedicated cultural organizations that in turn host Carabram’s Pavilions.
For over 30 years our festival has provided a powerful platform for diversity. We have connected tens of thousands of people to countless cultural experiences; experiences that many may not have otherwise had the opportunity to enjoy. We are about bringing people and cultures together. We are about breaking down barriers and showing the world that together we can create a world of peace, built on mutual respect allowing us to enjoy the rewards of this harmony.
Carabram celebrates just how similar we really are. For as long as Carabram has been around and will be around, our small army of volunteers will always represent and reflect all that is good about humanity, all that makes us honour our heritage embodied in the pride of our great country, Canada.
Enjoy Carabram 2016. Be safe, be well and be out there celebrating. See you there.
