Newcomer Days are special events that recognize and celebrate newcomers, immigrants, and refugees. These events also strengthen our community by bringing neighbours of all backgrounds from across the city together. Several Ontario cities have celebrated Newcomer Days, and this will be the first time Cambridge has offered one. This opportunity came about through partnership with multiple local agencies and sponsors who are supporting this event.
Cambridge’s Newcomer Day takes place September 17 from 2:00-8:00p.m. In the afternoon, a special community citizenship ceremony will take place and the public is welcome to join for the formal proceedings. The celebration continues into the early evening with a community festival featuring an information fair, recreation exhibition, local performers, food vendors, and fun activities for the whole family. Everyone is welcome to join us, no matter when you decided to call Cambridge home.
