2017 Carassuga Festival of Cultures

May 26, 2017 - May 28, 2017

Carassauga is an incorporated non-profit volunteer community organization, which celebrates its 32nd Anniversary this year. It operated for the first time in 1986 with 10 Pavilions, initially operating only on Saturday and Sunday.  It was created in response to a challenge put out by  Mayor Hazel McCallion to all ethno cultural groups at a meeting of her calling in the old City Hall in the fall of 1985.  It quickly evolved into a 3-day, 22 hour event.

Advance Passports only $10.00 when purchased before the Festival weekend.  

Purchase your Advance passport online or at various locations throughout Mississauga (at City Libraries, Square One Bus Terminal, Community Centres and retail outlets), Brampton – Shoppers World Mall, Etobicoke – Cloverdale Mall and various locations throughout the GTA.  See our list below for addresses.
