SATURDAY, APRIL 27, 2019(10AM-4PM) @ James R. Hallford Stadium, 3789 Memorial College Ave., Clarkston GA 30021
The Clarkston Culture Fest has been an incredible development, sparked in the imaginations of a few people for a community festival, growing to what it is today, an immense celebration of CULTURE. Since Clarkston, Georgia is one of the most culturally diverse communities you’ll ever find, it is a perfect display of what ‘culture’ can be. This festival highlights the differences that exist between us while celebrating our ability to live amongst each other. The idea of ‘culture’ is demonstrated much deeper now at the festival than it was years ago, spreading our view of culture to include art, food, sports, fashion, and even cars to complement the numerous international and local cultures we display yearly in our Culture Village. The planning committee is incredibly dedicated to ensuring that we continue to grow the festival in this way and that we are able to educate, appreciate, and celebrate every person’s unique qualities.

Saturday, April 27
Culture Fest!!! 10AM-4PM
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.
A continued 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 festival goers about the language, culture traditions, artifacts, and dress of his/her culture, and will provide opportunity for interaction and question asking.
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.
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.
People who park in designated parking areas further away from the festival activities will be shuttled to/from the festival in regular shuttles.
