On Simcoe Day 2017 (Monday, August 7), the Nia Centre for the Arts will present a creative arts celebration highlighting culture and community with a block-party style picnic and concert at Earl Bales Park, as the finale to our “BlowOut Fest” weekend of festivities. Our four-day festival celebrates craft design, literary arts, dance, and music, with participation from local and international artists and a featured guest speaker who will emphasize the importance of the arts. We will acknowledge the historical significance of John Graves Simcoe, Emancipation Day, and the cultural and artistic elements that have evolved in the Black community.
