Latin American and Caribbean UniDiversity Festival
*"Annual Latin American and Caribbean UniDiversity Festival"*
*OXFORD UPTOWN PARKS*
The UniDiversity Festival is a collaborative effort to promote diversity and inclusion in our community, and it is also a chance to learn more about the peoples and cultures that are quickly emerging as the largest ethnic group in the United States. This festival is the kick-off of a month full of activities encompassed within the National Hispanic Heritage Month.
People have an opportunity to enjoy a taste of some of the finest cuisines from around the world, a unique repertory of music and dances, arts and crafts, children's activities, petting of llamas and alpacas, and display of literature/panels/photo exhibits about Latin America and the Caribbean.
