CELEBRATE commUNITY 2024
February 17, 2024 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm$5,
CELEBRATE community is an exciting day of cultural immersion. Adults and children alike will have opportunities to interact with others at over 50 booths that represent different countries, religions, and community organizations showcasing a beautiful spectrum of diversity.
From Noon until 3:00 pm, many booths will serve free ethnic food samples, while others will be selling their ethnic wares and artifacts. Families can partake in barrier-breaking games, crafts, and activities that will continue throughout the day to make the message personal and effective. Being shoulder-to-shoulder and eye-to-eye will result in a long-lived positive experience for all who participate.
The event starts at 11 a.m. with an awe-inspiring Flag Ceremony, drummed in by our Native American elders. Guests will be welcomed by our City and County officials before the live multicultural entertainment kicks off from Noon until 3:00 pm.

It is our greatest hope that CELEBRATE commUNITY reaches more people in more neighborhoods and that our community grows in respect, understanding, and appreciation for all that live in it. The mobility of society often distances people from their roots. At CELEBRATE commUNITY, we aim to educate all generations about their heritage, while celebrating the heritage, cultures, and traditions of others.
Now is the time to CELEBRATE all that makes us diverse and for our community to join in UNITY.
