International Multicultural Festival

May 16, 2015 10:00AM-8:00PM
The International Multicultural Festival (IMF) is centered on celebrating the uniqueness of the Austin Community by bringing different cultural groups together to learn, explore and celebrate each other and enhance the unity among family. This festival is derived from the idea that we are all different and unique, and yet, we are all the same. We may look different, speak different languages, and hold different practices and beliefs. But when we look inside ourselves, we are still the same and there is still so much to learn and benefit from each other’s different cultures. Multiculturalism is more than just the acknowledgment of a diverse cultural background. Here in Austin, we witness the intertwining and interaction between cultures, local and international, and the positive influences they play on each other.

There will be Music, Dance, Story Telling, Multicultural Performances, Speakers, Food and Drinks from different multicultural vendors.
