February is recognized nationwide as Black History Month, a time to honour the legacy and continuing contributions of Black Canadians. Brampton is hosting two events in February in celebration of our city’s Black African and Caribbean communities. 

The City kicked off the month with a flag raising ceremony on Saturday, February 1 in Ken Whillans Square, and will bring the month to a close with the Beat of Black History Month event on Friday, February 28 at City Hall. This closing event will feature a marketplace with food and retail vendors from 12 to 8 pm in the Conservatory, and a ceremony including song, dance and spoken word performances at 6 pm in the Atrium.
