Every year I try to travel to a different country, preferably in a different continent. I love seeing and experiencing the diverse culture, music and customs of people from around the world. But when I can’t travel, I look for something close to home. A multicultural city like Toronto has no shortage of amazing cultural festivals during the summer. So, whether you want to reconnect with your roots or experience something new, check out these upcoming events!
