1st Annual Marysville Multicultural Fair
Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013 * 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Comeford Park, 514 Delta Ave.
This new multicultural fair is an event free for the entire family. Enjoy music and dance from around the world on stage in the Rotary Pavilion in Comeford Park. Experience traditions from other lands through demonstrations and displays. Enjoy the food court where exotic ethnic foods will be available for purchase, and explore artwork on display from our diversity arts contest coordinated by the Marysville Arts Coalition and Mayor's Diversity Advisory Committee. Plenty of cultural resource and craft vendors, and hands-on activities for children.
The event is being coordinated by the Mayor’s Diversity Advisory Committee and Marysville Arts Coalition. The Coalition will announce and display the winning entries from an all-ages diversity arts contest earlier this year.
The multicultural fair is proudly sponsored by key sponsor Sea Mar Community Health Centers, HomeStreet Bank, Marysville/North County YMCA, Molina Healthcare and Marysville Free Methodist Church.
Come one, come all
“We are excited to offer this new event to bring hundreds of people together in a celebration of the many diverse nations, languages and cultures of the world through food, art, music and dance,” says Mayor Jon Nehring. Nehring established the Diversity Advisory Committee in 2010 to advise him and city government leaders on issues of diversity and inclusion. The Committee also includes representation from advocates of individuals with a physical or mental disability.
