This week-long extravaganza brings together residents and visitors alike to experience a fusion of cultural traditions, music, food, and entertainment.
Oshawa's Fiesta Week showcases the multicultural fabric of the city, featuring performances by local artists, dance troupes, and musicians representing various cultural backgrounds. The streets come alive with colorful parades, where participants don traditional attire and showcase their cultural heritage through lively performances.
The festival also offers a tantalizing array of culinary delights, with food vendors serving up delicious dishes from different cultures.
Fiesta Week in Oshawa is not only a celebration of diversity but also a platform for fostering understanding, unity, and appreciation among the community members.
It creates an atmosphere of inclusivity and pride, where everyone can come together to enjoy the festivities and embrace the multicultural essence of Oshawa.
CELEBRATING CULTURAL UNITY
The Oshawa Folk Arts Council (OFAC) is a non-profit organization that aids in sustaining and celebrating the cultural diversity and multicultural communities of Oshawa. For 45 years, the OFAC has brought together over 15 local non-profit cultural groups (pavilions) for a weeklong, annual multi-cultural family celebration across Oshawa called Fiesta Week.
Fiesta Week in it's entirety is presented, organized and run by volunteers from across the board, from OFAC Board of Directors to the cooks in the kitchen, all the way to the 4 year old dancing on the stage.
All of the proceeds from Fiesta Week directly support our local non-profit cultural organizations. These proceeds allow OFAC to continue on serving the community through the years and for generations to come.
We are excited about celebrating the cultural diversity and multicultural communities that make Oshawa a great place to be. Here's to another successful Fiesta Week!
Instead of having a parade this year, we have decided to close down the street for an exciting FIESTA Street Party. There will be a variety of vendors, food trucks, talented buskers, and much more! We invite you to join us on Sunday, June 18th, from noon onwards as we commence the festivities for Fiesta Week 2023!
