Come and celebrate the cultural and linguistic diversity of our local community. The 12th Annual Festival of Cultures will be a day of free family-friendly fun with all-day entertainment: music, dance, song, and storytelling. Enjoy hands-on cultural crafts activities, visit cultural exhibits, food, and artisan vendors. The Festival is a gathering place where all can meet, share in, and learn about each others' cultures. Here you can take a passport and "travel the world in Lee Park". The Festival is organized by us with the involvement and support of many other individuals and organizations and provides an opportunity for building bridges of communication between new Americans and established residents. The Festival is in Lee Park on Market Street next to Main Branch of the Library in downtown Charlottesville. This event is FREE and open to the public.
