Themed "Celebrating the local flavor of Wake Forest," this free event will feature a variety of multicultural foods available in our community. Several local restaurants, food vendors, caterers and grocery stores will showcase their culturally diverse foods and desserts by providing free samples.
Area residents are also invited to come out and view artwork from local students depicting their family's various countries of origin. Attendees will have the chance to cast their vote for best artwork based on age categories.
Several musical acts will also perform throughout the afternoon.
One of the major goals of the HRC is to encourage community unity and increase awareness of the unique cultures Wake Forest has to offer. To that end, Multicultural Day celebrates Wake Forest's rich multicultural heritage and bring residents together for a taste of the various cultures that make Wake Forest such a welcoming and family-friendly community.
