June is Heritage Month in Brampton

June is heritage month in Brampton, with celebrations throughout to honour the City’s diverse communities. 

Residents are invited to enjoy live entertainment and traditional cuisine as we celebrate Italian Heritage Month, Portuguese Heritage Month and Filipino Heritage Month. 

The City of Brampton is proud to honour our diverse mosaic by highlighting the different cultures of our residents and the significant contributions of Italian, Portuguese and Filipino Canadians in making Brampton the incredible city it is today.
