The Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden converts a jut of concrete into a green, heritage, arts, public meeting space. Donate to help the Grand Opening - local & indigenous music to be played on our streets for the first time in 200+ years. Let's celebrate!

WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?
Friends of the Dundas Roncesvalles Peace Garden, a volunteer community group, are fundraising, with a goal of $9,800, to help pay for the Garden's Grand Opening: Saturday June 11th, 2016. The Opening Ceremony starts at 11 a.m. at the Peace Garden, followed by a short walk down Roncesvalles Avenue to Ritchie Street for an outdoor stage, in cooperation with Roncy Rocks. 

We aim to bring the leaders of Toronto and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation together to cut the ceremonial ribbon and lead off the day's festivities, which will include music, dance, and art from both communities. This collaboration will produce the first performances of indigenous music played on the streets of our neighbourhood in more than 200 years!


A stage, street closures, and permits will be required to make this all possible, and, especially to compensate the performing artists.

The day's events will be free and open to the public! Mark your calendar. 

EVERYONE WHO DONATES WILL BE THANKED ON THE THANK YOU PAGE OF DRPG.CA , PERMANENTLY, unless you ask for anonymity.
