The unique cultures will be presented through cultural booth, food, music and performance. In the cultural booth you will learn about a culture’s art, artifacts, traditions... The food being sampled at the festival are all authentic homemade items. The high light of the live performance is a fashion show where we showcase the traditional clothing.
