Celebrate Canada’s Birthday!
The Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre, Glen Abbey Community Centre, Oakville Museum, and Iroquois Ridge Community Centre have prepared special activities marked with a maple leaf to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday.
Tale of the Town of Oakville
An interactive exhibit on the Tale of the Town of Oakville will be up from February 11 to 20 at the Main Gallery at Queen Elizabeth Park Community and Cultural Centre for residents and visitors alike. The interactive exhibit will showcase a selection of 100 stories gathered last year from community stakeholders, independent business owners, neighbourhood residents, and local heroes. The stories narrate the collective community memory of the whole of Oakville one story at a time and aim to promote neighbourhood culture and preserve local heritage. The 10-day event is hosted by the Town of Oakville in partnership with Fix Point Productions. Admission is free.

No One Goes Hungry!
