Join us on the Summer Solstice, June 21, 2023 from 11:00AM – 3:00PM as we celebrate Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
This is a day to learn more about the history and diversity of Indigenous culture. Celebrate the beauty of Indigenous culture with us by creating traditional artwork, experiencing Indigenous performances, and enjoying some tasty bannock and jam from Feast Café Bistro Catering (while supplies last)!
Plus, help us build a teepee in Time Squared and crawl inside for extra special story times throughout the day.
