Cambridge is hosting Newcomer Day on Sept 17th, 2019 from 2-8pm at Cambridge City Hall. "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." Other Ontario cities also celebrate Newcomer Days and this is the first time Cambridge will do so.
"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."
