UMW Multicultural Fair, April 11

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

Multicultural Fair PosterThe 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 we have an excellent line-up of performances and over 60 vendors who are selling a wide range of cultural items, jewelry, accessories, t-shirts, tapestries, art, personal care items and more.
