Online Celebration

Sunday, 15 November 2020 from 1:00pm to 3:00pm


Festival of Neighbourhoods Kitchener invites YOU to participate in an interactive online celebration recognizing all the amazing ways you and your neighbours created community connections this year. Our theme is A Mosaic of Neighbourhoods, and we’ll be highlighting the neighbourhoods and people that make Kitchener the strong and diverse community we cherish.

Zoom along with your neighbours and City of Kitchener representatives to share your ideas for the future of your neighbourhoods, take video tours around the city and participate in a fun creative activity.

By joining the party on the Zoom meeting platform, you’ll have the opportunity to represent your neighbourhood and win one of five $100.00 ‘Door Prize’ Gift Cards from local businesses towards your neighbourhood projects.

Sign up to attend at Eventbrite

You will receive a confirmation email with the Zoom meeting link to access the celebration.

On the reservation order form, you can volunteer to be a Breakout Session host; lead a small online discussion group and spark imagination as they envision the future of your neighbourhood.
