Heritage Fairs 5 - 8

"The Heritage Fair is a multi-media education program developed to increase the awareness of and interest in Canadian Hisotry. The Heritage Fair is an event that actively involves Canada's young people, schools, business and community organizations in a contemporary celebration of Canada's shared traditions and history." (The Heritage Fair Manual: A teachers' Guide to Running a Heritage Fair. Historica: September 2004)
