Multi-Cultural Festival in Greensboro a huge success!

| September 22, 2017 | 0 Comments

 

Greensboro’s inaugural Multicultural Festival was a special day of celebration for our community!  Almost 200 attendees experienced a day of lively entertainment and delicious food as they celebrated our cultural diversity.  The weather was warm and sunny, and people gathered to watch a variety of shows, eat, shop and learn.  Best of all, admission was free!

 

Happy visitors enjoyed fried fish, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken platters, salmon burgers, fish gyros, black bean burgers, yucca fries and cocoa bread.   A lively slate of performers, face painting, free caricatures by Paul Merklein and a busy crafts table provided entertainment and fun all day.

 

The success of the day was a tribute to the many entertainers, food providers and volunteers who came together to support the North County Branch Library in this new endeavor.  A huge thanks to our community partners and vendors, and all the performers who were happy to share their gifts with us: Sammati Dance Company, To the Pointe Dance Studio, Reno Retu Natayalaya, the Born Again Gospel Group, Como Tu Abuelo Guyaberas Fashion Showcase and A Masters Peace: West African dance.  Your contributions were so generous, and we are so enormously appreciative!
