Vesak, Buddha’s Birthday Celebration

Vesak, Buddha’s Birthday Celebration

Vesak is the annual celebration of Buddha's birth, enlightenment and death more than 2,600 years ago. This family-friendly day of art, food and entertainment from many parts of South East Asia and Canada is hosted by three Buddhist temples representing all three of the major schools of Buddhist thought. Come enjoy the devotional art, talk to a monastic, or visit our Buddhism 101 tent to learn how Buddhism is a vibrant part of the Canadian mosaic.
