Brantford International Villages Opens Tonight

It’s the first day of the Brantford International Villages Festival tonight. The first of four days filled with food, fun, and friends. This year there are 17 total villages to go and explore the various cultures. From food to fashion to music and dance you can just enjoy your afternoons and evenings and fill yourself up with life. Our own Richard Huskisson has been enjoying villages for years, including the year which produced this particular memory:

Most villages will be open Wednesday & Thursday from 5:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., and Friday & Saturday from 5:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. And while it might be tempting to go and tackle every village that’s on offer this year, take our advice – Pace Yourself! There is only so much time and so very much to do. While the villages also will again have free transportation between them, making it easier to get from one to the next, it isn’t required to do more than one or two a night. For those unfamiliar; the passport which you can get at each village is good for all villages for all four days and includes a map of the city with village locations, as well as hours and show times for each village where you can enjoy cultural entertainment including music, dancing, unique cuisine and beverages plus cultural displays of costumes and history. Most locations are wheelchair accessible.


The 17 Villages this year are:


Each of them have their own style of fun and food to explore! Pick your ideal visits, plan your route and where you will eat and which shows you want to see, and always remember to enjoy any alcohol in moderation. But once you have everything all set? Go forth and create your own memories!
