Multicultural Festival and Gourmet Ethno-Food Truck Fair

July 01, 2020

Rotary Waterfront Park, Albert Street - Cobourg

The Multicultural day is now in its 6th edition, but this year we are raising the bar and coming with a big changes!

We are forecasting more people than ever to join us in Coboourg for a day of celebration at the Rotary Waterfront Park - Albert Street, July 1, 2020 with  Multicultural Festival and Gourmet Ethno-Food Truck Fair from 10:00am to 9:00pm

The festival will showcase Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism Initiatives by building bridges to promote intercultural understanding, promoting equal opportunity for individuals of all origins and promoting diversity, citizenship, civic engagement and a healthy democracy. This will have a big impact in all four pillars of our society – people, business, nonprofit and government – to celebrate the ways in which we work together to make Northumberland a prosperous and diverse community.


A colourful day of music and food will enrich the multicultural experience:

  • Citizenship Ceremony: Open to the public (weather permiting) 
  • Gourmet Ethno-Food Trucks Fair. Enjoy Foods from around the world in one place!
  • Over a dozen multicultural performances from all ages!
  • 7 local groups performing music from Irish to Latin-America's rhythms, including Bollywood and Salsa classes! 
  • The American Rogues in concert!

Drawing favourable comparisons to Wolfstone, Afro Celt Sound System, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, symphonies, and Japanese taiko groups, and consistently providing performances from Grade 1 bagpipers and other world class musicians The American Rogues has electrified audiences on three continents for many years.  

They have added to their ever-growing family of fans at music festivals, theaters, Highland Games, military bases, renaissance festivals, and more -- anywhere that presents top-quality, high-energy music.This has even included shows with world-renowned violinist/composers Lindsey Stirling and Alison Krauss, as well as airplay on TV and radio, and shows at non-Celtic venues such as the World Music Festival in Quebec, Canada where they kicked off the 6 day event to widespread acclaim (they've played this festival 6 years in a row and counting).

In 2017 they became the "St. Paddy's Band" of Rogers radio stations nationwide when they recorded Celtic versions of contemporary songs for airplay, 2018 saw them perform at festivals in Scotland including one of the largest Highland Gatherings in the world, and 2019 will see them begin appearing with Japanese International artists the Nagata Shachu. Their hard won road successes have established them as artists with bona fide international acclaim.  

Renowned for their musical skill, quick wit, compelling storytelling, and engaging stage show the AMERICAN ROGUES have mastered the art of creating an immediate connection with audiences who can't stay in their seats.  They are equally known for their epic, multi-instrumental sound that crosses the musical landscape to include jigs, reels, hornpipes, ballads, originals, covers, soundtracks, patriotic and military music, Irish foot-stompers and more.  

The AMERICAN ROGUES are fast becoming a household name with music lovers around the world, loved by young and old of all backgrounds.
