Join the Westbank Museum and over 30 cultural community groups and community partners at this year’s Westside Multiculturalism Day on Saturday, June 29th from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM! This is a free, family-friendly event celebrating the diversity of the Greater Westside!

This year we are moving to a new venue, and will be holding the event at Memorial Park (where Westside Daze and Music in the Park takes place).

There will be cultural pavilions representing over 30 different community groups from across the world, with information, educational opportunities, activities to participate in, and food samples to try! We will also once again be having our Cultural Passport program which you can complete to enter some prize draws!

We will also be having cultural performances take place from 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM, including dancing from multiple cultures, a performance by Women of Turtle Island, piano playing, music from reggae artist Gold Mynd, and more! Stay tuned for a performance schedule!

Additionally, we will be hosting several free cultural workshops at this year’s Westside Multiculturalism Day, which will have their own event pages posted when details are confirmed, and will be shared on this event page.

There will also be food trucks on site that will have food available for purchase. Details on which food trucks will be shared when more details are confirmed.
