Opening weekend

Written by Hamann, Dietmar. Posted in Human rights

Canada’s new national museum will open its doors to the world on September 20, and we’re planning a full weekend of free events to celebrate.

On Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21, the Museum will host RightsFest – a two-day celebration offering human rights-themed music, performances, activities and cultural events for people of all ages.

The free weekend activities will take place at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba, but you can join the celebration online or on live TV no matter where you are.

Mark your calendar for:

  • The nationally broadcast Canadian Concert for Human Rights taking place on the evening of Saturday, September 20 on an outdoor stage at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba;
  • More than 25 daytime performances and activities at multiple outdoor locations around The Forks from morning until late afternoon on Saturday, September 20 and Sunday, September 21;
  • A special free “preview tour” through selected galleries inside the Museum, from morning until late afternoon on Saturday and Sunday.
