Ethnic cuisine is everyone's favorite part of the Festival. What food is your culture known for? Do you have a family recipe? Cook and sell it at the Festival!
Performance is a universal medium for sharing and celebrating cultures. Perform a traditional dance or song to showcase your heritage at the Festival!
Jewelry, clothing, accessories, paintings, sculptures, pottery, baskets, decor - if it is connected to your culture and you make it, sell it at the Festival!
Demonstrations of traditional art forms that have been passed on from one generation to the next within families, communities and cultural groups.
Hands-on experiences are a great way to learn about different cultures. Organize an interactive activity to share your culture with Festival attendees.
Nonprofits, social service organizations + businesses with relevant information to share with Festival attendees are invited to have a booth at the event.
We have flags from nearly 50 different countries and invite community members to carry a flag in the parade.
WHAT COUNTRY ARE YOU OR YOUR ANCESTORS FROM?
