The Downtown Chandler Library Plaza will once again host Chandler's annual Multicultural Festival on Saturday, January 17, 11:00 am - 4:00 pm. Join us as we celebrate our community's cultural diversity through music, dance, art, storytelling and more.
In 1995, the Friends of the Chandler Public Library established the Chandler Multicultural Festival to bring the community together for a fun-filled day of art, music, and dance while also learning a little more about the rich cultural diversity that exists in our community. The festival has grown into a signature event for the City and offers a quality arts experience in the comfortable setting of the downtown Chandler Public Library. Admission is free! For more information, including a schedule of the day's events, visit the City of Chandler website.
The Multicultural Festival is a part of the Celebration of Unity annual events held each January to honor our community's heritage and diversity, along with the spirit and ideals of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement.
