Since 1993, this Squamish event has brought a diverse group of local people together to celebrate and build friendships. 

The free Multicultural Gathering will be held at Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish Nation) Totem Hall on Saturday, Feb. 10, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m.
“A grassroots event that brings community members together to share music, dance and cultural activities. An opportunity to learn, share and participate,” reads the event’s description. 

Squamish Valley Elders are hosting it in collaboration with the Squamish Multifaith Association and with support from the Squamish Valley Administration.

Annually, this event brings folks from various faiths and backgrounds to bond over shared food and entertainment.

The Squamish Sikh Society is one of the groups actively participating.

"Our volunteers prepare all the foods from the temple," said Tony Malhi, of the contributions of the temple this year. "Like pakora, chickpeas, boiled rice. Of course our herb teas will be provided."

Sikh dancers will also perform. 

Everyone is invited to come and enjoy the festivities and to share their own culture with others. 

In particular, organizers are encouraging local youth to attend to learn and then pass on to others what they have learned.
