A cultural event offering international food, music, storytelling and more will be held Sunday in Templeton Park.
The free, public event called MultiCulti Sunday will be from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. to celebrate “cultural heritage, family ties and the natural diversity” that reflect our communities, coordinator Jordan Elgrably said.
It includes a potluck barbecue, and people are welcome to bring foods of their choice or share something reflecting cultural heritage or a particular culture they’re passionate about. Storytelling for kids will be held in multiple languages.
The event is being held by The Markaz, a nonprofit founded in 2001 that strives to promote dialogue and build bridges through the arts. The organization is based in Los Angeles, with a San Luis Obispo chapter. The event is part of the SLO World Arts and Cultures Series, which has already included a concert by Canadian world music band Jaffa Road at the Clark Center on April 9. The series will include a North County concert of flamenco music and dance on June 18.
