2. WHEN Thursday, August 13—Sunday, August 16 2015.
Durham Festival is a celebration of culture showcasing food, concerts, cycling, innovation,
performances and creative expression of all kinds.
This is Durham like you’ve never seen it before: united within a lively celebration of the diverse
communities that call our region home. The four festival pillars are connection, inclusion,
collaboration and unity.
Everyone is welcome to take part! In this first year, the festival team is led by Durham Tourism
and a small committee with extensive support from Durham’s eight municipalities along with
local organizations and businesses. Smaller festivals and events are encouraged to join in!
This is our chance to offer visitors a glimpse into the best Durham has to offer. With millions
of eyes on the area as Ajax, Whitby and Oshawa host aspects of the Pan Am/Parapan Am
Games, Durham Festival will begin as the games come to a close, keeping the momentum alive.
