“This is our fourth Jubilee. We started back in 2015 and we have it every two years except during COVID,” explained organizer Kathy Bergeron.

The event will feature various foods from Greece, The Philippines, France, Germany, Vietnam, and India in addition to performances from Terrance Littletent, Sounds of Africa, and Ukrainian, German, and Caribbean dance ensembles.

“It’s so affordable. It’s $10 for the entire day for adults, students are $5, and kids age 6 and under are free,” noted Bergeron.

The event opens at 11am on Saturday at the Prince of Wales Centre in Assiniboia. You can hear our entire interview with Kathy Bergeron by clicking below.
