The FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre and Kakekalanicks Indigenous Arts present Celebration of Nations, a gathering of Indigenous arts, culture, and tradition in downtown St. Catharines from 6–8 September 2019.  More than 40 free events will take place in downtown St. Catharines, within the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre’s four venues, as well as The Mann Raceway Plaza (the PAC’s outdoor gathering space commonly referred to as “the Backyard”), and within spaces at Brock University’s Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.

The three-day gathering will showcase a wide variety of Indigenous arts and artists, ranging from traditional to contemporary music, dance performances, sunrise ceremonies, film screenings, creative workshops, an outdoor artisan market that includes food vendors, and hands-on workshops and an activity zone for both children and adults.
