13 For 13 Cultural Festival

August 7-20, 2022 – Travel across Canada without leaving the Niagara Region.

13 for 13

We are excited to invite you to this one-of-a-kind initiative that has never been done by another Canada Games host before — the 13 For 13 Cultural Festival!

Held on select evenings between August 7-20 2022, this festival event will see each of Niagara’s 13 municipalities collaborate with one of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories to showcase the unique cultural heritage, entertainment, art, and culinary experiences of each pairing during their assigned special night (see schedule and pairings below). As we continue to emerge from what has been challenging times, the Niagara Host Society is excited to provide an opportunity for Canadians to come together in celebration of what makes this country so special.

The 13 For 13 Cultural Festival will rotate nightly during the 2022 Canada Games, changing from one municipality to another, and offer complimentary admission to all.

Visitors of the festival will be afforded the opportunity to experience the cultures of each province and territory, while also travelling across Canada without leaving Niagara — something that will hopefully inspire many to explore this great nation.

Canada Games 13 for 13

The 13 For 13 logo is an artistic version of the Canadian map, shaped like a maple leaf. Beams of light radiate from the Niagara Region out towards each province and territory. The light projects positive energy and hope, representing Canadians travelling to come together after a long period of isolation. The translucent, converging shapes have the appearance of crystal shards, representing the resilient nature of our citizens, but also the power of strength.
