Thank you for making the 2023 Festival of Cultures a Success
Thousands of people recently gathered to celebrate the 2023 Festival of Cultures—some local community members and others from abroad. Although this was the 26th annual event, it was the first year following the integration of the Multi-Cultural Center into LSS. The partnership between LSS and the Levitt honored the tradition of the festival while elevating the experience for the attendees, volunteers, sponsors, vendors and performers.
The event, which featured nearly 50 vendor booths and food trucks, is more than experiencing different cultures for a day. While some Festival attendees pulled up a Levitt chair close to the stage to enjoy the day’s lineup of captivating performances, others participated in traditional Lakota necklace making with Starr Chief Eagle, had their book signed by author, refugee and event emcee Achut Deng, admired the display of 188 flags representing countries around the globe, or learned to hoop dance with Dallas and Starr Chief Eagle.
Enjoy some captured moments from the Festival of Cultures.
