Celebrate Europe Day in the National Capital on 26 May!
To mark the 69th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration – known as Europe Day – the Delegation of the European Union to Canada and the Embassies of EU Member States are hosting a day-long cultural fair at Lansdowne Park on Sunday, 26 May.
The celebration features live music, folk dance performances, games and activities for children, in addition to free sampling of European traditional foods and beverages. Outdoor enthusiasts and those in a competitive mood will have the unique chance to brush up on their Irish hurling skills, courtesy of Éire Óg Ottawa Hurling Club, or try their hand at Mölkky – Finland’s traditional skittle-throwing game. Smurf mascots will be on hand too.
