Concordia University marks Loyola Campus 100th anniversary with a Harvest celebration. In 1916, the first buildings that now comprise Concordia University’s Loyola Campus were completed. To mark their centenary, Concordia is throwing a Harvest Celebration on Saturday, October 22.
Concordia is proud of its storied history in Notre-Dame-de-Grace, and deeply values its roots in the community. To show its appreciation, the public is invited to join in the Celebration for a full day of free events and activities.
This event is also a celebration of the fall season. Reflecting this, there will be a farmers market offering delicious, seasonal produce from local suppliers and artisanal goods made by Concordia students. Additionally, the NDG Food Depot will be running a food drive and collecting non-perishable food items.
Other healthy offerings include fitness classes that will be hosted by Concordia’s PERFORM Centre, as well as nutritious food provided by the Hive Café Solidarity Cooperative and Seasons Catering.
