Celebrating and Discovering Our Diverse Heritage
- A time to celebrate culture. Wonderful entertainment on two stages and strolling musicians on the plaza. Dancers, bands, choirs, drummers, and acrobats!
- A time to discover the tastes of many cultures. Indian, Mexican, Greek, Italian, Soul Food, Barbecue, Hungarian. Buy merchandise from ethnic vendors, and learn about our world at information booths.
- A time to enjoy interactive activities for all ages.
A broad range of performers will take the stage, treating audiences to everything from reggae, mariachi, hip-hop, gospel, bluegrass, Celtic and more. Entertainment will be featured on several stages and strolling performers will entertain in a crowd, at a line, along the street, around the plaza, table to table – you name it. The lively dancers promise to be a favorite as they take the stage to share the steps of West Africa, Ireland, India, Egypt, America and more!
