Uplands hosts cultural dinner

The vivid sights and stirring sounds of Mexico will be showcased at the Canadian Club of Victoria’s annual cultural dinner

The vivid sights and stirring sounds of Mexico will be showcased at the Canadian Club of Victoria’s annual cultural dinner, with a performance by the “Viva Mexico! Folklore Dancers Association.”

This year’s dinner takes place April 14 at the Uplands Golf Club.

The Viva Mexico! association is a group of friends of all ages who share a passion for Mexican culture and a deep love for the art of dance.

The troupe is proud to share with Victorians the traditional dances and costumes of many different regions of Mexico.

The Canadian Club of Victoria celebrates the fact that the fabric of Canadian life is enriched with a population drawn from all parts of the world.

The 2011 census shows that more than 20 per cent of the Canadian population was born outside of the country.

While the Mexican Canadian community is small in number, with less than one per cent of the population of Greater Victoria, the community makes a contribution of immense value to the city’s vibrant cultural scene.

The event takes place at Uplands Golf Club, 3300 Cadboro Bay Rd. and tickets are $35 for members and $40 for non-members. Tickets are available on EventBrite or by calling 250-370-1837 by April 10.
