2019 Spring Festival of Faiths and Cultures


Celebrate Equinox and Earth Day

This fourth year our annual Spring Festival of Faiths and Cultures will extend for six days from March 11th to March 16th. On each day a complimentary program takes place at Thanks-Giving Square from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. presenting a different faith and cultural experience that demonstrates the essence of its traditions. Some events will be inside the Hall of Thanksgiving and others will be outdoors in the garden/plaza at Thanks-Giving Square. Celebrations will include experiential presentations, parade, music, food, color, and traditional prayer ceremonies. Join us for this family-friendly community event organized by the Interfaith Council of The Thanks-Giving Foundation.
