The 22nd Annual Multicultural Festival! is a FREE EVENT held at the Davidson County Fairgrounds on May 5th from 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.  Due to the Fire at Dixie Furniture, the event has been moved for 2018 from Uptown Lexington to the Fairgrounds while cleanup is underway. 

The Multicultural Festival is a day filled with the sights, sounds and tastes of foreign lands, and it offers a wonderful and educational outing for the entire family! The event showcases cultural diversity through elaborate costumes, musical instruments, exhibits and entertainment. There are 5 villages: Latino, African, European, Asian and Native American. This year we will have Middle Eastern exhibits as well. There is an area designated for children with amusement rides and inflatables. Plus, you will want to check out the Teen Scene designed for young adults. Stages will feature entertainment from around the world. Visitors will experience new vendors and performers as well as family favorites, and be immersed in a variety of different cultures from around the world!  This is THE must-see event of 2018!

For information about becoming a vendor or performer, please contact Tammy Curry.  If you are interested in being an event sponsor, please contact Andrew Lance.
