The Multicultural Festival is an inspiring three-day event that celebrates the multifaceted diversity of our community and the world beyond. The experience is designed to reveal what unites us rather than what separates us. Organized by a committee of students, parents, and teachers, we look at culture from multiple perspectives in conversations, demonstrations, and experiential workshops.
Traditionally, the Festival opens each year with a buffet from around the world and sing-a-long in over 20 languages. Additional highlights include guest chefs in Kitchen-Science, an international children's film festival, story-telling and games.
Launched in 2002, the Multicultural Festival has continued to evolve and explore how each of us and all of us are part of humankind and shape the future we inhabit.
FROM OUR 2021 FESTIVAL
As we continue to find ways to connect and come together, while keeping our meaningful Studio traditions alive, an idea emerged. “What We Bring to the Table," includes all elementary and middle students, creating a mixed media mural, representing individuals within our community and throughout history, who have transcended boundaries of their time. The objects on the table—symbols of love, knowledge, and perseverance. The table is placed on an inspirational background suggestive of hope for brighter and better days ahead.
