Annual Multicultural Festival, Taste of Joan, to be held on May 4th

St. Joan of Arc Catholic High School in Vaughan will host its 11th Annual Taste of Joan Multicultural Festival on Thursday, May 4th 2017, at 7 p.m. The Maple school is home to over 1,300 students with backgrounds from over 50 countries.

From Asia to America, Africa to Europe, St. Joan of Arc is proud of its cultural community and students take great pride in sharing their passion for their heritage.  Whether they are from Brazil or Bulgaria, Afghanistan or Argentina, Germany or Guatemala, Italy or Ireland, Syria or Sri Lanka, these students are the future of the Maple community. They are proud representatives of a diverse Canada, and the Taste of Joan event strives to promote unity that transcends the school and international communities. All are welcome to experience this multicultural festival.

This year's event expects to attract over 400 people to the school to join the students in celebrating diversity.

Funds raised from the event will be directed to the St. Andre Besette Catholic Church Building Fund. The evening boasts a thunderously good time and is fittingly themed, "Thunder's Kitchen."  Guests will have a chance to sample foods from each country, which will have displays set up in the school's cafeteria.

There will also be various types of entertainment including music, dancing, costumes and cultural pavilions for guests to browse.

St. Joan of Arc CHS is located at 1 St. Joan of Arc Ave., off of McNaughton Rd, just west of Keele St. (north of Major Mackenzie Dr.) in Maple.
