Celebrate Heritage Day in Cumberland on Saturday, February 20, 2016
Heritage Faire from 10 am to 4 pm at the Cumberland Recreation Centre.
Cumberland’s Heritage Faire was originally launched by a group of community volunteers in 2003 and was modeled on the folk festival that ran from 1949 to 1958 celebrating the diverse heritage of Cumberlanders. Each year over 50 families, clubs and other organizations set up displays of antique tools, unique collections, photos and demonstrations of crafts and folklore from the early days of Cumberland and the Comox Valley.
