    On the fourth Saturday in September each year, CulturFest unites music and dance talents, ethnic foods, authentic merchandise, and adult and children's activities to enrich its visitors with a multi-cultural experience.

    This full-day festival is filled with a large variety of entertainment opportunities for you to enjoy. The main stage runs the full day of the festival and is filled with performers such as a Mariachi Band, Irish and Aztec Dancers, and Mean Mary.

    CulturFest ties back to most countries – so whether you come from Germany, Russia, Brazil, Mexico or any other country we more than likely have an activity representative of that region.

    More than 20 children's activity stations are set up for the PASSPORT PROGRAM. The children "take a trip around the world" while learning about various countries through hands-on activities and/or crafts. The students' passport gets stamped once they have finished a country's activity.

    The workshop area will give people the chance to learn various crafts and ethnic skills from around the world!

    Artisans selling handcrafts from the far reaches of the globe will be represented at CulturFest. Hmong needlework, Paraguayan Sweaters, Middle Eastern Henna art, Korean dolls and Polish paper art are just a few of the items available.

    For additional information on the festival, please feel free to visit our website.
