You’re invited to our fifth birthday bash! We’re throwing a party to commemorate five years since we opened our doors and began our quest to connect cultures. In the spirit of that mission, we proudly bring you an exciting range of cross-cultural music and activities, including Persian jazz, Filipino hip-hop, and even Bhangra dance classes! Other festival highlights include a food fair, family art activities, live music, dance classes, an artisan market, and free admission to our Museum Collection. On Saturday the galleries are open from 12 to 8 pm, and on Sunday they're open 12 to 6 pm.
