Multicultural Fair

This year’s Multicultural Fair is coming up at the University of Mary Washington and will be filled with fun and food. The event typically attracts between 5,000 and 6,000 people, showing off the university’s commitment to multicultural awareness while educating attendees.

Where and When

The Multicultural Fair will take place rain or shine on Saturday, April 14. The day begins at 10 a.m. and lasts until 5 p.m., giving you seven hours to appreciate other cultures. The event is on the University of Mary Washington campus, making it easy to find.

What to Expect

As this is the 28th Annual Multicultural Fair, attendees already have a very good idea of what to expect from the event. You can get a better idea of what to expect and what happened at previous year’s fairs by checking out the event’s Twitter page. There will be dance and musical performances, along with other types of multicultural entertainment. Last year included performances by groups of Irish and Indian dancers, among others who took the stage. You can also look forward to activities for children, so bring the whole family with you. Don’t forget to bring some money to purchase items from the ethnic craft vendors, as well. You may find something to give to that special someone in your life or an item to decorate your home. There will also be plenty of food, including international dishes along with American ones.

Who Is Involved

As in previous years, the Multicultural Fair is the result of a partnership between the James Farmer Multicultural Center and Multicultural Student Affairs. They work very closely with student organizations, staff, and faculty from the University of Mary Washington. They even partner with the community, without whom they would not be able to pull off the event.
