One of the most powerful ways to share culture is through art, craft, and food. Food trucks, craft vendors, and tables offering information about various religious and cultural beliefs will be part of the event. Our intention is that this festival will provide an opportunity for people of all ages to learn about cultures different from their own through interaction and showcase a juried selection of fine-quality craftsmanship. The focus is on information and education, not condemnation or conversion. Apply to be a vendor here.
Expressions of culture and belief vary across the globe and we love to showcase these traditions. We brought together local dancers, singers, poets, musicians, and story-tellers to share their talents. Performances and interactive engagements will be scheduled throughout the course of the event. Enjoy the performances or jump in for a class! If you would like to be a part of this festival through a performance or by teaching an interactive class, please click here.
