HRC to host Multicultural Day March 23

The Wake Forest Human Relations Council (HRC) will host the inaugural Multicultural Day on Saturday, March 23, from 1-4 p.m. at the Wake Forest Renaissance Centre, 405 S. Brooks St.

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, the 2019 Multicultural Day will celebrate Wake Forest’s rich multicultural heritage and bring residents together for a taste of the various cultures represented throughout Wake Forest.

Volunteers are needed for a variety of roles during Multicultural Day. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and will receive training prior to the event. Civic groups and community organizations are especially encouraged to participate. To sign up and/or view the full array of volunteer opportunities at Town-sponsored events and activities, visit www.wakeforestnc.gov/volunteer-wake-forest-online-registration.aspx.
