Fiesta Week in Oshawa kicks off June 17th at 12:30 with an opening parade and the party continues until June 23rd. Fiesta Week is dedicated to great, culturally diverse cuisine, as well as drinks and entertainment. Stop by the many different pavilions and try something new! From Caribbean, to African, to Ukrainian, there’s no shortage of amazing food.

Food, Tickets, and the World

Some pavilions sell food during lunch time and you do not need a passport to buy. However, at certain times, you’ll need a passport/ticket. The passports are sold at $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for seniors, $5.00 for students, and free for children under 14 years-old accompanied by an adult.

The pavilions are spread throughout central Oshawa between King Street and the 401 and Stevenson Road and Ritson Road. Check out the map for a complete guide to find your desired pavilion.

Fiesta Week is presented by the Oshawa Folk Arts Council and is an annual event. It is a family-friendly event celebrating culture, diversity, and food. Be sure to check out the Durham Caribbean Festival the day before Fiesta Week on June 16th for Caribbean cuisine, live entertainment, and carnival rides.
