To celebrate the 46th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Canada and China, The Fujian Communities Association of Canada is organizing “2016 Mid-Autumn Festival Charity Gala and the 2nd Fujian Culture Exhibition” on Oct 14th & 15th at the Markham Civic CentreGrand Hall Exhibition, and Oct 16th at the Markham Event Center banquet hall. These events are strongly supported by the Markham Civic Centreand we are honored to have the Mayor, Frank Scarpitti, to chair the event.
These events are also strongly supported by some associations and related government authority organizations from Fujian, China.
Fujian is located in China's southeast coast and is surrounded by mountains, seas, and pleasant subtropical weather. It also has rich cultural heritage with many historic and tourist attractions. The tea culture has always been an important aspect of Chinese culture and a driver of foreign exchange in the region. Fujian province in China produces among the highest quality tea around the world and has built this reputation through several centuries.
On the days of the Mid-Autumn Festival Gala and Fujian Culture Exhibition there will be a series of Fujian Tourism video play, book fairs, historical photographic and Chinese calligraphy displays, tea brewing performances, tea tastings, traditional fashion shows, and cultural dances.
We hope that through this exhibition and gala, the community can learn and experience the happiness to celebrate Mid-Autumn festival, rich Fujian culture and flavors of quality Fujian tea.
