Submitted to Cashbox Canada Harbourfront Centre’s 2017 summer season celebrates Canada’s cultural heritage with Sounds of Home, a sonic tribute to the strength of the diversity found across the land known as Turtle Island. The season kicks off on June 27 with Here in the 6ix: Celebrate Multiculturalism Day, a program offering a full day of free events reflecting Toronto’s rich cultural mosaic. Four distinct weekend festivals in July form the core of a programming vision that gathers Canadian talent from coast-to-coast-to-coast for an array of evocative and entertaining events ranging from concerts, comedy shows, family activities, culinary events, and late-night afterparties. Audiences and visitors are invited to join us throughout the summer on Toronto’s waterfront to relax on our lakeside vista and enjoy these curated festivals, your favourite annual festivals, and season-long events, such as the Summer Music in the Garden classical music series, and our weekly Free Flicks outdoor film series and Dancing on the Pier events. “As one of Canada’s leading international centres for contemporary arts and culture, Harbourfront Centre’s waterfront campus will continue to be a meeting place for artists and cultural enthusiasts seeking relevant artistic, cultural, educational, and recreational experiences,” says Marah Braye, Chief Executive Officer, Harbourfront Centre. “Our summer festivals bring together artists from across Canada reminding us of the multitude of voices that create our Sounds of Home.” “The Canadian Multiculturalism Day festivities being held in Toronto and throughout the country will be more spectacular than ever for this Canada 150 year,” said the Honourable Mélanie Joly, Minister of Canadian Heritage. “We have a unique opportunity to celebrate our country’s linguistic, cultural and regional diversity. I invite Torontonians and visitors to join family and friends and celebrate in this cosmopolitan city that is open to the world. Let’s all make 2017 a year to remember!”  About Here in the 6ix: Celebrate Multiculturalism Day Toronto, recently dubbed “the most diverse city in the world” by the BBC, is home to communities from every corner of the globe.
