Verbo hosts its Multicultural Festival as a celebration of the diverse community of North Fair Oaks, with more than 800 people in attendance annually. The Festival brings together people from the community with origins in Latin America, the U.S., and other countries to share their cultures through food, music, dance, traditional dress, art, and more. This helps to break down stereotypes, builds bridges between people living in this community and with those from beyond it too.

Some of the activities planned for the Festival each year include:

  • The Parade of the Nations, with countries represented by their flags, carried by people in traditional dress;
  • Food booths featuring traditional dishes from the countries represented;
  • Community resource booths;
  • Kids’ activities like bounce houses and face painting; and
  • Live music and cultural performances of dance and theater.

The event is free for everyone.
