Celebrate Europe Day in the National Capital - Ottawa

Explore Europe's diverse cultures through music, dance, games and culinary delights

OTTAWA – To mark the 69th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration - known as Europe Day - the Delegation of the European Union to Canada and the Embassies of EU Member States are hosting a day-long cultural fair at Lansdowne Park on Sunday, 26 May.

The celebration features live music, folk dance performances, games and activities for children, in addition to sampling of European traditional foods and beverages. What's more, outdoor enthusiasts and those in a competitive mood will have the unique chance to brush up on their Irish hurling skills, courtesy of Éire Óg Ottawa Hurling Club, or try their hand at Mölkky - Finland's traditional skittle-throwing game. Smurf mascots will be on hand too.

Throughout the day, participants will also have the opportunity to learn more about Europe's tourist and cultural destinations on display at the stands organized by the diplomatic missions.

"We invite our fellow Ottawans and Canadians to explore Europe's diverse family of cultures through music, dance, games and culinary delights right here in the National Capital Region," said European Union Ambassador Peteris Ustubs.

"On this 69th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, we would like to invite Canadians to be part of this festivity and celebrate our remarkable Canada-EU friendship. There's also a little surprise, but obviously I am not at liberty to say more."

Participating EU Member States are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

Doors open at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, 26 May at Lansdown Park/Horticulture Building, Ottawa. The event is open to the public and is free of charge.

About Europe Day

On 9 May, 1950, the French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman called for the unification of Europe to make war on the continent impossible and to spread peace and prosperity globally. In his historic Declaration, he proposed a new supranational model for Europe, a visionary idea that set the wheels of European integration in motion and led to the European Union as we know it today.

About the EU Delegation to Canada

Established in 1976, the European Union Delegation to Canada is a fully-fledged Diplomatic Mission and, as such, the natural contact point in Canada between the EU and the Canadian authorities. It also has a strong public diplomacy mandate designed to enhance the knowledge and understanding of the European Union as well as EU-Canada relations.
