Vesak: Buddha's Birthday Celebration 2019 is an annual event commemorating Buddha's birthday, enlightenment, final attainment of Nirvana and also the United Nations Day of Vesak. Buddhist Temples across Canada come together to celebrate this special day.

Our event will begin with a parade around the Celebration Square showcasing Buddhists of different ethnicities in their native costumes.

Canadian Celtic rock group Screeched Inn began over a decade ago as a trio. With a focus on tight three part harmony and audience interaction, they perfected their sound through classic rock, top 40, and country genres.
