  • Celebrate diversity, individuality, movement and culture in Newmarket this June

    Created: Thursday, May 30, 2024

    The Town of Newmarket is committed to building a strong, healthy and equitable community where everyone feels an unwavering sense of belonging. In June, the Town recognizes all the ways that we can embrace individuality, celebrate culture and encourage movement.

    Throughout the month, Newmarket is offering countless activities and in-person events to honour unique Indigenous histories, recognize the contributions of seniors and continue to build a community that is inclusive and accessible.

I hope you’ll join us for the many celebrations throughout June.”
