Each year, the Concord Multicultural features a full lineup of performances, food vendors, craft vendors, artists and activities that showcase the many cultures that are represented in our community.
It is our goal to create an engaging event that brings people together to celebrate the diverse heritages that make the Greater Concord community so enriching.
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! If you are a traditional artist in New Hampshire and would like to present, please contact Kayla Schweitzer: Kayla.Schweitzer@dncr.nh.gov
