(Lawrenceville, Georgia) The Gwinnett County Multicultural Festival on Saturday, April 14, at Shorty Howell Park promises a variety of activities including fun for kids, food trucks, and performances from around the world.
This free festival is both a celebration of the various cultures that make up Gwinnett and a County government open house where residents can learn about the services available to them and meet the employees who provide those services.
The festival offers opportunities for residents to meet officers from the Gwinnett County Police Department and to check out some of their equipment, including a helicopter and some of their specialized vehicles. Various other County departments will be on hand to share information about their programs and services.
For kids, there will be bounce houses, face painting, a dunk tank with a brave police officer to take the plunge, and more.
Local groups will entertain the crowd with folkloric and traditional dances and musical performances from around the world, and food truck vendors will sell culinary treats.
The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Shorty Howell Park, 2750 Pleasant Hill Road in Duluth, and is hosted by the Gwinnett County Police Department in partnership with the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners, Gwinnett Multicultural Advisory Committee, Center for Pan-Asian Community Services, and Safe Kids Gwinnett.
Join us at this fun event celebrating Gwinnett’s community during our bicentennial year!
