The Seventeenth 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 delight in the offerings from out 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 the Thomas Jefferson Adult and Career Education (TJACE) Program at Piedmont Virginia Community College with the involvement and support of many additional individuals and organizations in our community.  The event provides an opportunity for building bridges of communication between new Americans and established residents, and between different cultures residing in our community. Once again, Booker T. Washington Park on Preston Avenue in Charlottesville, near downtown and on bus line #8, serves as host site for the Festival. The Festival of Cultures remains FREE and open to the public.
