The Summerside Mayor’s Heritage Tea has long been a heritage week activity in the province. The afternoon event in the Council Chamber of City Hall celebrates the City of Summerside’s Heritage and Culture Awards mixed with great entertainment, wonderful food, and community connections.
 
However, 2021 has brought some changes to the event. With regards for public safety, the tea will go ahead on Friday, February 26th and will be open only to Summerside Heritage and Culture Awards recipients.
It is sad that such restrictions must be taken, but the health and wellbeing of the community must be the first consideration. The good news is the event will be livestreamed. Stay tuned as we will provide you the livestream link next Thursday, February 25th. While some changes had to be made this year, we still want to celebrate the wonderful contributions of our community towards heritage and culture in the City of Summerside.

Celebrating the Birthday of Canada’s National Flag 

National Flag Day

 

Monday, February 15th is the 56th birthday of the National Flag of Canada, informally known as The Maple Leaf. In past years Culture Summerside, the arts, heritage, and culture division of the City of Summerside, has celebrated Flag Day with a Summerside school. Because of current public health guidelines, Culture Summerside is moving the celebration online and invites everyone to the party that will be sure to both entertain and educate.

 

Island actor Mark Haines, with words and music, tells the story of the difficult birth of our national flag, which has become a much loved Canadian symbol. The short video was professionally recorded in the historic Wyatt House Museum.
