Multifest is Clarkson's annual multicultural showcase of food and talent; along with a fashion show of traditional and contemporary clothing from around the world.
Organized by the student-run Multifest Committee under Mrs. Khan's supervision, the evening of May 23rd was full of excitement and fun – a true celebration of diversity in our Clarkson Community.
A huge turnout came to see the talents of our students, including those from our Peel International Academy.
