Aboriginal Awareness Day this Sunday June 19-16 at Crawford Lake

Posted by on

Join us for Aboriginal Awareness Day at Crawford Lake and enjoy a fun filled day celebrating Canada’s Aboriginal past, present and future in the park’s picturesque, reconstructed Iroquoian village.

This year, Crawford Lake’s Aboriginal Awareness Day festival falls on Sunday June 19 and will feature a variety of fun and exciting activities which will delight the whole family.

Feel the drumbeat, the heartbeat of Mother Earth, as Gonrah Desgowah - the White Pine Dancers take the stage in the reconstructed Iroquoian Village! Visitors will be dazzled by the colourful regalia and leave uplifted by the dancers’ interactive performances at 1 and 3 p.m.

Kids can challenge themselves with craft making, discovery hunts or try their hand at playing Lacrosse while the adults enjoy a sample of Nature’s Tea and stroll through the village and gardens.

No day at Crawford Lake would be complete without a trip to the Visitors Center to explore the gift shop, the perfect end to an exciting day of celebration.

The Aboriginal Awareness Day festival runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sunday June 19. Regular park admission fees apply. Conservation Halton annual members admitted free of charge.
