In September, the PEI Association for Newcomers presented Workforce and Advanced Learning Minister Richard Brown with a statistical report outlining the success of the 2015 DiverseCity events.
The report finds that approximately 12,000 people attended the Charlottetown festival June 28; while 2,500 attended the Montague event on July 4; and 4,000 attended the Summerside Diversity Festival on July 25.
Each DiverseCity Festival was supported by the host location, (Charlottetown, Montague or Summerside) and featured representatives from dozens of cultural communities outlined in the attached report. These included food vendors, stage performers, martial arts demonstrators, artisans, and information booths of various Island ethnocultural groups.
