This year we are having a Celebration of Caribbean Drum & Dance

Muhtadi International Drumming Festival is a two-day multicultural extravaganza that showcases 30 plus performers/groups playing an eclectic array of drums from a beautiful mix of nations. Drumbeats at this Festival connect the heartbeats of Canada's enviable, harmonious combination of cultures.

In addition to the live performances, the event also features Drum Village workshops where members of the public can learn, and try their hands at, various drumming styles. Lots of mouthwatering ethnic foods will also be available as well as arts and crafts from many parts of the world.

This year we are designating an area exclusively for vendors to provide an international selection of vegan products and services. Our International Vegan Marketplace will be highlighted by tasty and healthful plant-based vegan foods from many cultures around the world.

We share a universal responsibility to maintain a healthy planet for us humans, all other living beings, and for the many generations of people and animals to come. VENDORS WELCOME!

An innovative, fun, third-year addition to the festival is ‘Let The Children Play.' Children of all ages are invited to join in and play various percussion instruments. Cameroon-born musician, percussionist, Njacko Backo, will be the instructor. Added to this there will be a speed drumming challenge, drum circles and much more.
