Come and celebrate the cultural and linguistic diversity of our local community. The Fifteenth Annual Festival of Cultures will be a day of free family-friendly fun with all-day entertainment: music, dance, song, and storytelling. Enjoy hands-on cultural crafts activities, visit cultural exhibits, food, and artisan vendors. The Festival is a gathering place whose mission it is to create a space where all can meet, share in, and learn about each others' cultures. Here you can take a passport and "travel the world in a day". The Festival is organized by Thomas Jefferson Adult & Career Education @PVCC with the involvement and support of many other individuals and organizations.  It provides an opportunity for building bridges of communication between new Americans and established residents, and between different cultures residing in our community. This year the Festival is in Washington Park on Preston Avenue in Charlottesville, near downtown and on bus line #8. This event is FREE and open to the public.
