This year 2017, Canada is celebrating its 150th anniversary. As part of the celebration, the Canadian Embassy organized a Winter Festival in Lebanon. It was a unique opportunity to commemorate Canada but also to celebrate the Canada-Lebanon relationship and share and inform Canadians and Lebanese on Canada’s efforts in Lebanon.
On the 4th of November 2017, The Winter festival, took place at Forum de Beyrouth, Lebanon. The public had the opportunity to experience a typical Canadian winter festival, full of activities.
