Join us here and on our FACEBOOK GROUP from September 12-20 when we will be sharing an exciting mix of on demand and livestreamed international music, dance, interviews, art, and children’s activities - all submitted by the community.
This FREE virtual festival was created as a means of celebrating the resiliency and ingenuity that has always been such a part of the Harrisonburg community! It coincides with Welcoming America’s Welcoming Week, a nationwide event with the goal of bringing immigrants, refugees, and residents together to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive places to achieving collective prosperity.
