Starting in 2010, Program Coordinator, Jane Drew, says the World Fair is a leadership initiative to promote awareness and appreciation for many of the diverse cultures that reside in Fort St. John.

“World Fair began in 2010 as a student leadership initiative and has continued for the past 10 years. The World Fair is a community cultural event created by the Fort St John League of United Youths and SD60 SWIS program, to promote awareness & appreciation for the values, traditions and heritage of diverse cultures in FSJ. This year’s virtual event celebrates multiculturalism and friendship among different cultures and offers a great opportunity to virtually meet people from all over the world.”
