Romanian Pavilion

The Romanian Pavilion is located near the “Saints Stefan The Great and Necktarios” Romanian Orthodox Church. The Church is one of the oldest churches in Oshawa, established in 1916!

Visit our Pavilion to try one of Romania’s national dishes, Skinless Sausages-Mititei. They are little sausages made from ground meat without casings, lots of spices, grilled and served with mustard. 🍽️

Interesting Facts about Skinless Sausages-Mititei

Skinless Sausages is a cultural identity dish, called either mititei or mici, meaning “little ones” in Romanian.

The legend of mititei/mici dates to the early 1900’s. The story goes that a chef from a small restaurant in the Lipscani art district of Bucharest (the Romanian capital) ran out of sausage casings. Instead of sending all his customers home unhappy and hungry, he decided to roll the minced meat up and cook them on the grill. This happy accident was a great success and is now considered the National dish in Romania! 🇷🇴

Odesa pavilion has participated in Fiesta since its inception in 1973 when the festival was originally called “Fanfare”. 

The first Miss Fanfare was from the Odesa pavilion, followed by 3 Miss Fiestas and numerous runners-up. Odesa presents the beauty of Ukrainian culture and tradition through dance, artistry and its unique cuisine. The Ukrainian people have always shown their strength and perseverance. These traits are demonstrated in the current conflict overseas, and with help from the Ukrainian community in Oshawa we hope to show everyone in Fiesta that we continue to stand strong together. Join us at the Odesa pavilion where you will see our young people dressed in authentic Ukrainian costumes perform traditional Ukrainian dances (some more than 100 hundred years old); you can taste our traditional dishes (like pyrohy/varenyky, cabbage rolls, shishkebobs) and possibly take home a memory of Ukrainian culture from one of the many vendors displaying handcrafted goods.

Glory to Ukraine!  Slava Ukraini!  Слава Україні!

WELCOME TO THE Norther Portugal Pavilion
The heartbeat of Durham Region’s Portuguese community.
Founded in 1983 by Portuguese immigrants who wanted to celebrate their Minhoto roots our Centre has grown into one of the most respectable, community-minded clubs in Ontario. Although our Centre’s name, traditions and Rancho (folk dance group) are rooted in the north (Minho, specifically) we are by no means an exclusive “northern” club. Today our members (and our committee) represent all corners of continental Portugal, Acores and Madeira. We come together to celebrate our heritage through dance and food. We hold various fundraisers throughout the year to help local causes – specifically the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Regional Cancer Centre and our yearly Simcoe Hall Toy Drive.

The French-Canadian Pavilion first started in 1964 under the name “Rendez-vous.” It was organized by the Fédération des Femmes canadiennes-françaises d’Oshawa until 1987. In 2006, it made a comeback, now organized by several francophone organizations of the region. At the French-Canadian Pavilion, you can see and hear francophone singers and folk music. Since the beginning, in 1964, it has been the place to taste Pea Soup, Tourtière, Baked Beans, Sugar Pie, and Cake in maple sauce (just to name a few!)
