Upcoming Events Celebrate Brampton's Diversity


Brampton is known for its many diverse cultures. Now the city is looking to celebrate with some exciting upcoming events.

April has been declared Sikh Heritage Month by the City of Brampton in recognition of the important contributions that Sikh Canadians have made in the city and across the country.

With the month ending soon, residents are invited to the City Hall Atrium on April 27 to sample traditional cuisine, mingle, and listen to inspiring speakers. The Sikh Heritage Month Foundation's closing event will follow. It will feature live entertainment, cultural information, an artist marketplace and more.

Following Sikh Heritage Month, May is the holy month of Ramadan. To celebrate, the City of Brampton will be hosting its first Community Iftar on May 16 at 7 pm in Garden Square.

The event will recognize Ramadan with a free community dinner at sunset. This is when Muslims break their daily fast. Guests are welcome to enjoy a spiritual stage program, cultural displays, and special guests, followed by prayer and a traditional meal.

Spots are limited, so guests are asked to RSVP at www.brampton.ca/events.

"On behalf of Council, we are proud that the City is celebrating Brampton's amazing diversity through a series of cultural events this year," said Mayor Patrick Brown. "We hope residents from all cultural backgrounds will join us on April 27 to discover the rich heritage of the Sikh community in Brampton, and break bread with us on May 16 at the Community Iftar."
