The 24th annual Tibetan Cultural Fair features a handicrafts bazaar showcasing traditional arts and crafts such as clothing, jewelry, carpets, dharma-ware, ritual objects, CDs, books and more. The Cultural Fair will also feature live music and dance performances performed by the Tibetan Cultural Association of Québec, offering a unique opportunity to witness the beauty of Tibetan musical instruments, songs and dances.  Dhondup the Yak – always a favourite for young children – will also make a special appearance!

Oh and there will be momos at the Tibetan kitchen, as well as other such tasty morsels from the Tibetan Kitchen area of the fair.

The Canada Tibet Committee (CTC) is an independent non-governmental organization promoting human rights and freedom for the Tibetan people. The CTC is funded entirely by individual donations and special events such as this annual fair. The Tibetan Cultural Association of Québec preserves Tibetan cultural traditions, including performing arts, within the diaspora community in Québec and are proud participants in this event.
