Does the cold weather have you fantasizing about summer fun in the city? Make your winter dreams a warm-weather reality by adding the Museum’s slate of summer festivals to your calendar.
Each of our three festivals this year has its own distinctive flavour. But they share in common a few key ingredients: food, culture, and family-friendly experiences that bring people together. Look at the list below for a preview of the fun that’s in store. More information will be announced as the details are confirmed.
This Canada Day, indulge in a cornucopia of sounds that make this country a fascinating place to live. The Museum’s Rhythms of Canada festival boasts local and national artists channeling musical traditions from around the world. When you’re not dancing, replenish your energy with diverse and delicious eats on offer from the festival’s food vendors. Children’s performers and interactive activities like face-painting and crafts will charm the young and the young-at-heart.
Feast on flavours from around the world at the Museum’s family-friendly celebration of street culture. An ode to gathering together outside, this weekend-long festival invites you to dine on gourmet food — without the white tablecloths or the wallet-busting prices. Street performers will wow with their musicianship, dancing, and feats of human daring.
Say goodbye to summer, but not the childlike wonderment it inspires. On September 5 and 6, kites of different colours, shapes, and sizes will decorate the sky above the Aga Khan Museum’s outdoor space. Bring your own kite, or just sit back and take in the show. At hands-on workshops inside the Museum, kids will learn how to build their own kite, which they can take home with them or display in the Atrium.
