Your kids will love the eclectic African, French and local artists performing an upbeat array of music – from slam to folk, pop and accordion – supported by an eclectic crowd from all walks of life. When hunger calls, visit the food and crafts stalls, a collaboration with local traders and refugee social services. Later, the whole family can get green-aware at Citi-Zen’s permaculture area.
