STAGE:

All throughout the day, we will have performances from Clarkston area
musicians and artists both professional and amateur, including some of our local schools’
performing groups. These performances will portray the cultural diversity of Clarkston, delight
the audience with beautiful artistry, and encourage audience participation and engagement.


CULTURAL VILLAGE:

A new focus of our festival this year, we will have numerous
booths, each highlighting a different culture that is represented in Clarkston. Each booth will be
staffed by a Clarkston resident who will educate the festivalgoers
about the language, culture
traditions, artifacts, and dress of his/her culture, and will provide opportunity for interaction and
questionasking.


KID’S ZONE:

Geared for the younger population, but open to kids of all ages, this area
will provide activities such as: Face/nail painting, Henna, Hair braiding, Inflatable bouncy
games, Photo ops, limited sports options, and Children carnival games. Children will use an
"activity card" to experience activities then trade the completed card in for a prize bag.


VENDORS:

Local vendors will sell their wares encouraging people to support local
entrepreneurs. City organizations will also display important information for citizen awareness.
Local vendors will sell food and drink for the people to delight in an array of delicious flavors.
