Lots happening that’s free or nearly free and multicultural this weekend. I hope the weather improves. Check for cancellations.

On Saturday, June 2, Toronto will have a rare visit of a genuine Roman Catholic saint, Maria Goretti who died in 1902 in Italy trying to defend herself from rape. The Koreans will be at Christie Pits park, the Italians at Yonge-Dundas Square, and multicultural Parkdale will have a community Open House.

Thorncliffe Park will have a story-telling festival, and the public library at College and Bathurst will celebrate Chinese arts. In Vaughan, the Italians will have a flag raising and reception at Vaughan’s city hall.

On Sunday, there will be Culturama at Centennial College, the 17th Annual Israel Day Festival, and in Dufferin Mall, a Portuguese Youth Folklore Festival. The opening ceremony of the Jewish Music Week will be in Nathan Phillip’s Square.
