TRADITIONAL ARTIST DEMONSTRATIONS

Each year, the Concord Multicultural features a full lineup of performances, food vendors, craft vendors, artists and activities that represent more than 30 cultures from around the world, presented by folks who live and work locally. 


Traditional arts and folklife are the crafts, music, stories and ways of doing things that are passed on from one generation to the next within families, communities and cultural groups of all types. Here in New Hampshire, the diversity of traditions and heritages span from Native American basket weaving to Chinese paper cutting to Russian Matryoshka Nesting Dolls to Nepali/Bhutanese tabla-playing. 


The Festival features New Hampshire-based traditional artists demonstrating their craft, and a unique opportunity to interact, learn and ask questions!


We will be posting the list of demonstrations shortly - stay tuned! In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter + Instagram, and sign up for email updates
