Human Rights forum

August 11 – 15 – The Human Rights Forum presented by TD has been offered since 2007 as part of GlobalFest’s programming to promote diversity, cross cultural respect, and equality in our community. Our annual Human Rights Forum topics are structured around the UNESCO’s Coalition of Municipalities against Racism and Discrimination.




Wildflower CD release

August 16 – Country duo Wildflower release their new CD at Wine-OHs. $15 at the door

In the varied landscape that is today’s Canadian music scene, Wildflower stands out bringing a unique blend of folk-roots & rock to their own brand of country music. As with most musical journeys, Wildflower started with a song. Singer-songwriters Jennie Clarke (vocals) and Dean Selby (vocals, guitar) first met in a Calgary recording studio in 2012, and an instant chemistry and creative connection emerged.
