Mosaic Festival

August 18, 10:00 am - 9:00 pm

This is the first year of Halifax’s brand new multicultural event, a celebration of our city’s diversity. The official vision for the Mosaic Festival is a vibrant and colourful parade of music and dance paired with a waterfront party of concerts and vendors.

Admission is free, and it’s definitely family-friendly, with performances kicking off after the parade in the early afternoon. You’ll find the stage and vendors set up in the Salter Street waterfront parking lot. Check out the festival website for performer bios and a list of vendors.
