May 19 @ 10:00 am – 6:00 pm
The Cuban Embassy will be celebrating with Canadians their 150th Anniversary offering a view of Cuban culture in all its manifestations. The Embassy of Cuba is planning several special activities for its Ottawa Welcomes The World day. The festivities will include a tasting of Cuban food and cocktails, a dance lesson, a photo exhibition and interactive conference focusing on Cuba’s natural environment, a tourism fair with a raffle for two return tickets to Cuba, and hopefully some Cuban music. With that in mind, from now and until May, there will be more ideas and proposals to come. Stay tuned.
