If I say it means they have American and Swiss cheese, will I get smacked?

I'm embarrassed how long it took me to see the (potential) issue.

I agree, it is an odd qualifier. It's as though they're saying, "they could've seen a bigger one from Waterloo, in the States, perhaps with a telescope." But I'm pretty sure that's not what they meant.

If it is anything like Folklarama (https://www.folklorama.ca/), it will be like a large number of high school teas (if you are old enough to remember those) with cultural displays and live entertainment of varying degress.

In Winnipeg you get to eat the foods of other nations and to drink the alcoholic beverages of other cultures and to see the children (sometimes grown) performing. Sometimes a more affluent or politically connected (to the nation represented) pavilion will have imported entertainers.

I interpret it to mean they're including examples of other cultures from all over Canada, but other Canadian cities may have had bigger displays.

I think they were trying to write:

The 50th Annual Kitchener-Waterloo Multicultural Festival will be the largest celebration of Canadian multiculturalism that Waterloo Region has ever seen.

but wound up using "multiculturalism in Canada" where the structure expects a noun instead.

That was my eventual understanding of this as well. I had to read it a couple of times though. It's a poorly constructed sentence.
