Elephant Thoughts Labour Day Festival
Elephant Thoughts Labour Day Festival

Each year @Elephant Thoughts invites new friends and old to celebrate music, food, diversity, learning, culture, and each other. This year you are invited to the beautiful Riverstone Campus in Durham, Ontario. The Labour Day Festival is a cultural celebration like no other, with ticket sales limited to 300 people, the event is an incredibly intimate experience with world-class acts, and enriching cultural experiences. 

Experience a sweat lodge ritual led by an Indigenous Elder, try your hand at Somalian cooking, get some river therapy with a fly fishing session, get schooled on beekeeping, or just drum and dance your heart out with guided African drum and dance sessions. End your day with soul-bursting music, NO CROWDS, NO CHAOS, NO SEATING ASSIGNMENTS, JUST WIDE OPEN, FRESH SPACE AND KILLER MUSIC. 

This year, with your help, we are raising money for communities impacted by the current drought in Somalia and Ethiopia.
