Cultural Village

Immerse yourself in a spectacular showcase of Indigenous culture with the Masters Indigenous Games 2018 cultural village. Located in Downsview Park, the village will be in walking distance of a majority of the sporting venues in an open, beautiful area. The village will offer a celebration of cultural experiences through workshops, storytelling and interactive performances.  There will also be daily demonstrations of various traditional games.
