International Festival Celebrates Tenth Anniversary
Special Guests & Entertainers Promise a Diverse & Enriching Experience
The Latino Community Association (LCA) invites you to celebrate our diverse family heritages and cultures at the 10th Annual Festival of Cultures presented by US Cellular and the Deschutes Cultural Coalition on September 24 at Redmond’s Centennial Park.
The Festival of Cultures is an international affair including educational booths set up by Central Oregon residents representing many different cultures from around the world, and a very special Official Citizenship Oath Ceremony conducted by representatives of U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services.
25 people from roughly 15 countries are expected to take their oath at the event this year. And a very special guest will provide the keynote: Oregon Poet Laureate, Elizabeth Woody, of Warm Springs.
The festival includes local dance troupes, singers and musicians, ethnic food vendors, service and product vendors, a fantastic Kid’s Area, and the Passport Challenge game with prizes. Local Latin music legends, Chiringa, will play live around mid-day.
