12 Annual Multicultural Festival @ Cape Cod Community College

When: Sat Mar 3rd
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Where: Cape Cod Community College, 2240 Iyannough Road, West Barnstable

 

 

The Multicultural Festival of Cape Cod has grown to the point that it expands this year into another building on the West Barnstable campus of Cape Cod Community College. This day-long event starts at 10 AM with the Parade of Flags in the Tilden Arts Center's Main Theater and continues until 4 PM with free cultural exhibits, international vendors, and "tastes" from around the world, filling both floors of the Grossman Commons Building.
 
A free shuttle bus will circulate through the College's lots all day, bringing visitors up to the center patio area between the Grossman Commons and the Tilden Arts Center.
 

Ecuador joins Greece and Brazil in giving visitors a comprehensive look at the country, its people, and culture.

New this year will be Cape Verdean recording artist Candida Rose from New Bedford, traditional Chinese Dance with Allison Jodoin and company from Sandwich, Wampanoag Dancer/Performer Annawon Weeden, and singer/guitarist Brewster resident Ron Williams, among others.

All performances are free, and will range from the powerful funk and song-story styles of MWALIM and the Groovalottos, to the Caribbean Diasporas: Cuba and Haiti, along with traditional dances and rhythms of Mali, Guinea, and West Africa performed by the Cape Cod African Dance and Drum ensemble. Latino Colors, Los Hijos del Sol, the Dream Tale Puppets, and dancers from Egypt and Iran return to the stage as well.

The only charge for the day is for the international fare in the College’s dining area, and those prices are kept as low as possible to encourage the public to enjoy experiences from all over the world. The café opens for coffee and light fare early in the morning, and begins serving international foods at around 11 AM.
