PROJECT PROFILE:

A BANNER YEAR: 150 YEARS OF CULTURE IN TEMISKAMING is a community celebration to be held May 27, 2017 for Canada’s 150th birthday. This festive occasion will celebrate what it means to be Canadian with historic trivia, a historic costume contest, sing-a-longs featuring cultural favourites, a display of original artistic banners and five main stage performances.
