2020: Beyond the Festival

We are growing - help us to continue creating more multicultural programming and events!

Each year, the Concord Multicultural Festival gets bigger - more attendees, more vendors, more performances, and more impacts. These past two years have shown us that our community is more diverse than ever and that there is so much opportunity to expand our work beyond the one-day celebration of our diversity. 

In 2020, we will be working to bring more events and programs to the greater Concord area.

THINK: Cooking Classes, Food Tastings, Musical Performances, Art Exhibits, Educational Programs, Community-Building events, and more!

The work that we do through the Multicultural Festival and other events and outreach is indeed heartwarming and inspiring, but it also has other important benefits like contributing to the creative economy of the state, workforce development, strengthening partnerships between nonprofits, youth empowerment, and so much more. 

However, the most important part of all of this work is fulfilling our mission to create a welcoming community for everyone by providing opportunities to connect, share, and learn, and to make sure everyone feels like valued members of their community - of our community.

We always say that it takes a village to make the Festival happen, and now we're hoping that our village will embrace our next steps. 

Thank you for your support - whether it's been ongoing or you're just now joining us. Your participation matters and your gift will make a difference.

About the Organization

Concord Multicultural Festival c/o Granite United Way

Our mission is to create a Welcoming Community for all by fostering a culture of appreciation for diversity, providing engaging learning opportunities, and empowering new Americans with opportunities to successfully integrate and be part of our community.

The Festival celebrates the common natural differences we all share and is a place we can build common ground with others to make our community stronger. We believe there is great benefit in sharing stories, traditions, faiths, and food from all cultures, including the ones of our Native peoples and the many cultures that have settled here throughout our history. But there is still much work to be done that a one day event can’t accomplish. So, we are increasing our efforts and building a new organization so that we can do the work of creating a welcoming community, supporting diversity in New Hampshire EVERY day.
