Celebration of Nations

Due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the risk factors with putting on a large audience event and the most recent announcement from the President of the University of Windsor, we are sorry to update that the Celebration of Nations will be cancelled this year.


Celebration of Nations - March 19th, 2020

The Celebration of Nations event will mark its 15th year anniversary highlighting the rich cultural diversity of the University campus and Windsor-Essex community. It is an opportunity to promote awareness of cultural differences, to learn about other cultures, and to encourage everyone to celebrate their own heritage.  

The Celebration features a variety of performances, demonstrations and displays of food, education, dance, dress, and music.
