25th Anniversary of the Multicultural Fair

The James Farmer Multicultural Center is gearing up for its 25th Annual Multicultural Fair on Saturday, April 11, 2015 from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at UMW’s Fredericksburg Campus.

The Multicultural Fair is one of the University of Mary Washington’s long-standing, community-wide events and the James Farmer Multicultural Center’s signature cultural event. The Multicultural Fair celebrates cultural diversity by featuring craft and food vendors and performers who represent a broad range of cultural groups and cultural traditions. The Multicultural Fair also features children’s performances, activities, and attractions. Annually, the Multicultural Fair attracts thousands (between 5,000 and 6,000) of UMW student and staff members and community members from surrounding counties and regions.

This year will commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Multicultural Fair, which began in 1990. There will be an excellent line-up of over 40 multicultural performances and over 50 vendors selling a wide range of cultural items including jewelry, accessories, t-shirts, tapestries, art, personal care items and more.
