WINDSOR, ONTARIO, Canada – The Carrousel of the Nations returned June 17-19 with in-person villages, including the Greek Village at Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Church at 3052 Walker Road in Windsor, Ontario. Delicious food, live music, dancing, outdoor seating and activities continued throughout the weekend and the next weekend June 24-26.

“Carrousel of the Nations has long been a mainstay of the region’s summer festival season, celebrating the diversity and cultural identities of the ethnic groups of Windsor-Essex,” said Multicultural Council of Windsor and Essex County Executive Director Fred Francis. “We are excited for the festival to return to an in-person format so that our community can immerse themselves in the culture and traditions that make our community unique.”

The only ethnic and multicultural festival in the region, Carrousel provides residents and visitors with exposure to a wide array of cultures and traditions which they may otherwise never experience.

“This year’s theme is ‘Discover Carrousel,’” said Co-Chair and Multicultural Council President Allison Johnson. “An invitation to join the millions of visitors who have enjoyed world-class performance groups, cultural displays, traditional music and the best part – iconic festival food! The traditions and celebrations that we have come to love and anticipate will be on full display for those who are ready to discover the world without leaving the region.”
