The Multicultural Festival is held the first weekend in May at Finch Park. A main stage area and five villages are set up representing African-American, Asian, Latino, Native American and European heritage. Each village showcases native dress, music, visual arts, exhibits and food indicative of their particular culture. The festival is a day filled with the sights, sounds and tastes of foreign lands. It offers a wonderful and educational outing for families with children.
The Multicultural Festival is not just an educational experience. The International Children's area offers rides and amusements; while the TeenScene has gaming competitions. There is something for everyone!
The generosity of our sponsors allows this festival to reach such a large group of people. Please visit our Sponsor page for a list of businesses that generously support the Multicultural Festival.
