Carrousel of the Nations has once again been named the top festival by Attractions Ontario.

The province-wide awards recognize the best attractions in eight categories and have named Carrousel the Top Festival & Event in Ontario.

“We are all excited by this announcement and honored by this award”, said Multicultural Council Executive Director Kathleen Thomas, “For 45 years Carrousel of the Nations has celebrated the diverse cultures of our community, offering visitors food, music, dancing, and more from around the world. We are proud to share this award with the ethnic and cultural organizations in our region, whose dedication has made Carrousel the longest-running festival in Windsor-Essex.”

The past two years have seen Carrousel expand and adapt.  First with the addition of new four villages in Essex County in 2019, and then with the social media-based celebration of culture and community, [email protected], in 2020.

In addition to winning the Top Festival & Event category, Carrousel of the Nations was one of the three attractions that received the most votes across all categories. One of these attractions will be named Attraction of the Year at the Ontario Tourism Summit Virtual Awards Gala on October 28, 2020.
