One Burlington at Performing Arts August 1st - A CELEBRATION OF DIVERSITY

By Staff

July 9th, 2022



No Sunscreen, No Bug Spray, No Umbrellas Needed!

New this year, One Burlington’s Celebration of Diversity is being held at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre (BPAC) instead of outdoors at a local park.  Holding this FREE event at BPAC allows us to offer air conditioning, full accessibility, beautiful facilities and rain can’t dampen the day.

The event runs from noon to 4:00pm.  International food trucks will be outside to provide lunch and snacks from 11:30am.  Enjoy lunch at the nearby Cogeco Patio under the trees.  Coffee, tea and water are available free in the BPAC lobby.

Community and professional performers will be featured on the Main Stage theatre.  Shows begin at 12:15 and run every 20 minutes.  Performers range from Chinese Zither players to JoyRide, an entertaining exploration of musical instruments to Tyrsa Ukrainian Dancers.

The BPAC lobby will house community, faith and cultural groups at tables to provide information on their services and programs.  This is a one-stop shopping opportunity to learn about what’s available in Burlington.

There will be a panel discussion in the Studio Theatre from 12:15 to !:30.  The topic is “Working for Peace”.  Moderator Rev. Michael Coren is known for his controversial history as a conservative journalist and TV presenter before his change of heart and subsequent ordination in the Anglican Church.  Panelists come from a range of experience as faith leaders and educators.  Two Prayer Rooms are available for a little private time away from the crowd.

The Burlington Performing Arts Centre is the perfect facility for this event.  BPAC has fully equipped theatres, a large glass enclosed lobby and plenty of space on the Cogeco Patio and the Plaza for enjoying international foods.  All of this and no chance of sun stroke, rain or annoying bugs.

All activities are free of charge. Everyone is welcome to come and experience what Burlington has to offer.
