Our cultural organizations represent a Pavilion within the Festival and are located in various cultural and recreation centres within Mississauga giving visitors an opportunity to ‘travel the world’ without leaving the City.
Each Pavilion offers something special and unique. Pavilions take great pride in featuring a wide variety of activities to depict the culture of their country of origin.
During the Festival weekend, guests visit multiple Pavilions having their Carassauga passports stamped as they enter. Festival visitors can “ride for free” on our shuttle bus service that connects them directly to all Pavilion locations.
Once inside a Pavilion, visitors are surrounded by the sights, sounds and tastes of the country being represented. Each Pavilion depicts their culture through food, entertainment, art, historical displays and vendors.
