2nd Annual Multicultural Festival

2nd Annual Multicultural Festival

Join us for Nixa’s 2nd Annual Multicultural Festival on September 23rd from 10am to 2pm at Rotary Park! Celebrate the many cultures that make up our wonderful community! This is FREE to attend!

This event also happens to be during the Nixa Chamber of Commerce’s fall citywide garage sale weekend, so you can garage sale shop in the morning, stop by the festival for food and entertainment, and then shop some more before enjoying dinner at your favorite Nixa restaurant!

“The Nixa Multicultural Festival is a family-friendly opportunity to be immersed in other cultures and to learn about the diverse heritages of our neighbors,” says event coordinator Cindy Robbins, assistant city administrator. “We have an exciting line up this year featuring more music and dance performances from around the world. From traditional clothing, crafts and food to music and dance, we really want this festival to grow into a don’t-miss event on the regional calendar.”
