Engage for Change

Community Calendar

Stopping the spread of COVID-19 is a team effort, and for most of us, our way to contribute is to stay home. If you are not an essential worker, limit your trips out as much as you can. You’ll be protecting everyone. We’re all in this together, #ygk! For information on changes to City services, visit the City’s COVID-19 webpage.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Welcome to the Engage for Change Community Events Calendar! Members of the community are invited to submit upcoming Indigenous cultural events using the “Add Event” link in the right-hand menu. Submitted events will be reviewed for clarity and content by a site administrator and posted publicly on the calendar.

Although this calendar is managed by City of Kingston staff these events are not run by the City of Kingston unless expressly indicated.

Any questions about individual events should be directed to the event organizers. Those submitting events should keep this in mind when providing the information for your event.

We are grateful for the opportunity to share and facilitate this digital space for the community!

Upcoming Community Events

Community Health & Home support invite you to join us for Pow Wow Zumba. Pow Wow Zumba is an interactive movement class that brings the beat of the drum to an aerobic dance class. General pow wow dance moves are shared in a sequence, much like "Line Dancing". The intensity of the workout is dictated by the participant, as various modifications are offered by the instructor

Facilitated by: Lisa Hil       Pow Wow Music by: Bear Creek

Come out and enjoy the sound of the drum while exploring your inner pow wow dancer!
