If you love taking in a community party and love learning about other cultures, Casa CAFI and ACVQ have a festival for you. The Elgar Community Centre is hosting it’s first Latin-Fest, filled with amazing edible goods, music, art and some inflatable entertainment for children (and perhaps the young at heart). So brush up on some Spanish and take in some truly unique experiences from noon-8 p.m. this weekend.
Sharing Dancing Day (June 2)
If you love dancing but always feel silly doing so on your own, Canada’s National Ballet School is returning with their Sharing Dancing Day! At Place Émilie-Gamelin you’ll be able to join students and teachers in various dances. While free events are happening nation-wide you can take in free classes, activities, and performances by the group as well. Things start at 4 so get your dancing shoes on and hustle down.
TROPITRONIQUE (June 1)
For those already a little more in tune with their inner rhythms and ready to go, Tropitronic/Tonight We Dance! will get you moving this weekend! The DJ powerhouses of Soundshaper, Tupi Collective and DJ Oonga will have people bouncing to African and Latin American music from 5 p.m. to 11! Hilariously enough, this dancing event is also at the convenient Place Émilie-Gamelin so you’ll be hard pressed to forget where to get down this weekend.

If you decide to stay the night or can’t pull yourself away from the venue, Place Émilie-Gamelin will also be hosting a musical brunch this weekend. So if you wanted to eat breakfast outside while taking in amazing music, this is the place to be. DJ Mathieu Beauséjour will be bringing his British Invasion blend down whether you want to eat or dance, so get ready for a musical morning.
