The Canadian Museum for Human Rights has grand plans for their opening weekend in September.

The official opening of the only national museum outside of Ottawa will feature more than 25 daytime performances and activities outside and around The Forks, and will also feature a free open-air concert.

Performers slated for the Canadian Concert for Human Rights include Buffy Sainte-Marie, Bruce Cockburn, Shad, Ashley MacIsaac, A Tribe Called Red and Marie-Pierre Arthur.

In addition, free guided tours will be available, but tickets must be reserved. “Information on how to reserve free tickets for the preview tours will be announced in late August, along with a full RightsFest schedule including performance times and locations,” reads a statement from the CMHR.

The CMHR is slated to open on September 20.
