2023 Multicultural Festival

The Countryside Multicultural Festival celebrates all of the many cultures that make up our unique community! This year’s Multicultural Festival will be held at Brown Middle School on Saturday, May 6, from 3:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. The theme for this year is “Country Pride!” Each country will highlight what makes their country special. This might mean food, religion, history, and architecture, just to name a few.

If you would like to participate, please register here. Tell us what country you would like to join. If that country already has a group, we will help you get in touch with the leader. If your country is not yet represented, we will help you get one started! If you have any questions, please email us! Once registered we will provide as much or as little help as you need.
