Virtual Holiday Event - Spirited Festive Fun with Santa!

Santa Claus will be doing things a little differently in Ajax this year!

But good news! A Virtual Holiday Event full of festive fun will be held in place of the traditional parade.

Alternate plans will be announced soon.

Stay tuned to this page for more information.

St. Francis Centre – Twin Flames Concert - Postponed

Unfortunately, the Twin Flames Concert scheduled for October 3 at the Audley Recreation Centre has been postponed.

Twin Flames pushes the boundaries of “Contemporary Folk”, transcending the passion that comes from their souls into their musical creations. Musical powerhouse couple Chelsey June (Métis & Algonquin Cree) and Jaaji (Inuk & Mohawk) are multi-award-winning artists, including 2x Canadian Folk Music Award recipients for Aboriginal Songwriters of the Year and 3x Native American Music Award winners.  Their songs, sung in English, French and Inuttitut, tell stories of courage and survival, while honouring their ancestors’ history and representing their rich Indigenous backgrounds. 

Please stay tuned to this site for updates and new performance date information as it becomes available.
