About Us

In the early 2000’s, the Greater Concord Area Task Force Against Racism and Intolerance (Now named We Are Concord) began coordinating community discussions. During the 2004 discussion titled "The Changing Face of Concord: Racial, Ethnic & Cultural Diversity," nearly everyone involved recognized the importance of street festivals to the civic life of Concord, so it was decided that a big outdoor party was the ideal way to advance the goals of racial and ethnic tolerance and understanding in our small but quickly changing community.

Now in its 11th year, the Concord Multicultural Festival presented by the Duprey Companies has been infused with a new energy that will continue to make this event an annual staple in the Concord community. Participants are invited to celebrate their native cultures through music, dance, food, crafts, storytelling and other educational means appropriate to a small festival.

Our mission is to raise local awareness of those newly arriving in our community and appreciation for cultural diversity with the hope that increased awareness, supported by educational programs, will inspire our neighbors to accept, welcome and assist the newest members of our community.
