This year we will dedicate the day to celebrate ""Honouring Our Children"".

The day will be celebrated through Traditional First Nations drumming and dancing.

A blend of Metis fiddling and songs will lend a hand to step and square dancing.

Native crafts are available to view and purchase. Food vendors to tempt your taste.

There will be a Feast of giving thanks for the day at 5:00 p.m. This is a family friendly event. No drugs or alcohol. We do not permit family pets in the Arbour area. There is no admission cost for this event. However, in keeping with traditional life,we invite you to bring a small gift for the giveaway blanket. At the closing of the day, each person is honoured with a gift. A song and dance of honour will celebrate our traveling until the next time.
