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. This will be followed by cultural performances by participating temples. If you are interested to learn more about Buddhism or to experience the Buddhist way of meditation, come to our event on Sunday, May 26th.
