CCAH partners with community organizations like the Town of Oakville, Sheridan College, and Halton Regional Police Service to deliver a highly engaging kickoff event involving the performing and visual arts, initiating a month of cultural and educational activities in celebration of Black History throughout February.
Roots of Freedom Festival
This fun-filled two day festival focuses on local Black history and heritage within the context of the diaspora and Oakville's role in the transition from slavery to freedom. Through our partnerships with the Halton District School Board and Halton Catholic District School Board, the festival also provides facilitated opportunities to integrate Black history into school curricula.
Carousel of Nations Festival
The Carousel of Nations Multicultural Festival is a family event that contributes to the social cohesion of the Halton Region community. Since 1999, the festival remains to be a successful collaboration among the local ethno-cultural groups, professional and amateur multicultural artists, Halton Regional Police Service, local businesses, government and corporate sponsors.
