Reston Multicultural Festival Coming Up Sept. 23 at Lake Anne Plaza

Described as a “signature Reston event,” the annual Reston Multicultural Festival is coming up next Saturday at Lake Anne Plaza.

The celebration of cultures from around the world will include an international book fair, arts and crafts, entertainment, art exhibits, food, and more activities. A naturalization ceremony will also be part of the festival, as will National Heritage Award Fellows.

According to Reston Community Center:

The Reston Multicultural Festival is a celebration of the diversity and community spirit that is found in Reston. This annual event brings together the people of Reston to celebrate our rich medley of cultures. Family, friends and neighbors are treated to music, entertainment, dress, food and cultural treasures from all over the world that are all right here. This signature Reston event honors the diversity that is one of our greatest strengths. Everyone is encouraged to dress in attire from their own cultural roots and share the stories that we gather on the pathways of our lives.

The free event is scheduled to take place Saturday, Sept. 23 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., rain or shine. The entertainment lineup includes more than a dozen performers on two stages — the World Stage and the Global Stage — as well as at RCC’s Lake Anne facility. The “Global Market” will feature jewelry, clothing and more from around the world.

The Reston Multicultural Festival is presented by Reston Community Center and hosted by Lake Anne Plaza with co-sponsorship support from Reston Association. Partners include a variety of Reston-based organizations and businesses. Call Kevin Danaher, RCC’s community events director, at 703-390-6166 for more information.
