Continuing the direction of changing the stereotypes of society, TAIWANfest is prepared to start a new dialogue on Canada's multifaceted lifestyles between the new immigrants and Canadians who have been here for generations.  Lifestyles encompass the arts in taste, sounds and sights, the ways we live, move and communicate, and the beliefs in spiritualities, physicality and morality. Lifestyle has no right or wrong as it is a matter of choice. TAIWANfest features a series of culinary arts, music, dance and film events designed to stimulate conversation and promote understanding of the various lifestyles that exist in Canada today.

Events will be added to this schedule as they are confirmed.
