RHYTHMS OF CANADA
Sunday, June 30, 12–11 pm

Join us for a party that celebrates Canada’s contemporary fabric — a dynamic mix of world views, cultures, stories, and rhythms. Our festivities honour the Indigenous people of this land and explore Toronto’s many traditional and modern arts.

*A shuttle bus will be available from downtown to the Museum.

 

MOON LANDING FESTIVAL
Saturday, July 20, 12–11 pm
Sunday, July 21, 12–6 pm
Bring friends and family for lunar-inspired festivities as we mark 50 years since humans first landed on the moon! To complement our new exhibition The Moon: A Voyage Through Time, enjoy two exciting media projects: a lunar video projection and an interactive moon music-making station.

*A shuttle bus will be available from downtown to the Museum.

 

FIRST FIVE FEST
Saturday, Aug. 31, 12–11 pm
Sunday, Sep. 1, 12–6 pm
Save the dates for our fifth birthday bash! We opened our doors in 2014, making us the first museum in North America dedicated to Islamic art. Now to celebrate five amazing years of connecting cultures, we’re hosting a party with live performances, including Bhangra (Punjabi pop music). This celebration also kicks off our 2019/20 Performing Arts season, Listening to Each Other.
