This year’s event will bring together local artists and dance. “Cultural Dance is really important to us,” states the festival. “This is our way to tell other people what are the things that they need to know about our culture. It is also the way that other people could have respect, knowledge and give importance to our traditions and norms.”

The event is free to attend however vendors are subject to their own pricing.
