The OneWorld Multicultural Festival is returning to Penticton for its seventh year.
The celebration commemorates the many different cultures and backgrounds that make up the community.
It is set to take place at the Penticton Lakeside Resort on Feb. 22. from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.
The South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services (SOICS), who is organizing the event, describes the event as a brightly coloured mosaic of different cultures. This year, 35 different cultures are expected to attend.
The entire festival is a journey for the senses. Experience the taste of many different cultures, and then enjoy the sights and sounds of live entertainment throughout the day.
In addition to booths with local immigrants sharing their stories and experiences, there will be a variety of crafts and activities for the whole family to learn about different cultures.
The festival brings in 2,500 attendees each year, and more information can be found on the event’s Facebook page.
Admission to the festival is free and everyone is invited to come and attend.
