One World Day Brings Diverse Cultural Performances and Ethnic Food Together

Last year, some 20,000 people reportedly attended One World Day at the Cultural Gardens.

The event, which features diverse cultural performances and foods from the various countries represented by the communities that have Cultural Gardens, will again feature the Parade of Flags (this year featuring students from Thomas Jefferson International School leading each delegation with a sign like in the Olympics), a Naturalization Ceremony for new citizens, the popular Passport to Peace program during which visitors get their passport stamped at each garden after completing a task, Trolley Tours and a Beer Garden in the German Garden.

There will also be a Wine Garden in the Italian garden. There will be two main stages where you can see Moroccan & Lebanese Belly Dance, Bharatanatyam Indian Classical Dance, St. Paul Senior Hellenic Dancers, Kultura Filipiniana Dance Troupe and Moises Borges Brazilian Jazz.

The event begins at 11 a.m. today. Admission is free.
