The many cultures that make up the Lehigh Valley will be celebrated the weekend of June 9 and 10. It's the annual Artifest at the Museum of Indian Culture in Allentown.
There will be food, crafts, dancing, music and more from a dozen different cultures.
The museum said it hopes the festival brings out people from different backgrounds and encourages them to share their culture, and learn about new ones.
"The Lehigh Valley is a melting pot of so many different cultures," said Pat Rivera, executive director of the Museum of Indian Culture. "What we do is try to bring the grassroots of all those together, so we've been able to bring it together in one location to celebrate that cultural heritage."
Artifest is Saturday and Sunday, June 9 and 10, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. each day. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for seniors and children.
The Lehigh Valley Commemorative Mural will also be unveiled Saturday morning.
For the very first time, ArtsQuest organizers are teaming up with Lehigh Valley Grand Prix in Allentown for a fundraising event that's sure to get engines running.Read More »
