Festival of Cultures

6th Annual Festival of Cultures!

Celebrating the Diversity of Maywood Hills
through crafts, food, language, clothing, games, and performances!

March 31st, 2020

6:00-8:00 PM in the Maywood Gym

This event is as great as the participation! Please consider sharing your cultural background or interests with a table display or performance. Participation is open to all Maywood families, staff, and teachers. 

Visit this link NOW to sign up to host a table! volunteersignup.org/9LFLP

Table sign-ups will close on Friday, March 20th!!

If the country/culture that you would like to represent is not on this sign-up, please contact Jane (see email below) so that we can add it to the list. You are encouraged to work together with other people who sign up for the same country/culture — make some new friends! Students can even research a country/culture and then host a table presenting what they’ve learned! Participants will be provided with a table and a standing grid wall for their displays. In previous years, participants have included art work, traditional handicrafts, clothing, food samples, games, history, trivia, books, and more. It’s all up to you!

Are you interested in giving a short (10 minutes or less) performance? The kids LOVE the performances! It could be storytelling, a musical performance, a dance – whatever! Contact our committee via one of the emails below for more information!

Would you like to help with set-up and/or clean-up? We’d LOVE to have help! Middle and high schoolers are welcome to sign up & get community service hours! Visit this link to sign up! volunteersignup.org/9JE9F

Please help add to the richness of this year’s event by hosting a table or performing!
