There will also be workshops for attendees to learn how to make traditional foods, a Community Showcase and Dinner, and Awards at the Fort McMurray Golf Club, as well as the Gala Dinner and Awards ceremony at Shell Place.

Interested participants must register by September 17th through the RMWB website.
