Concerts will run from noon to 12:45 p.m.
“We are committed to providing a welcoming environment at Portage Place for all nationalities—including our Indigenous community,” said David Stone general manager of Portage Place Shopping Centre.
“Portage Place is a truly multi-cultural centre and our goal is to ensure people of all nationalities feel welcome.”
The mall says the concert series is part of a continued commitment by Portage Place to foster a welcoming and culturally inclusive environment for all patrons that visit the downtown shopping centre.
