Everybody Welcome: A Celebration of Culture and Diversity

A City of Colorado Springs sponsored week long celebration of the richness of our community. The week begins with a festival, a FREE family-friendly event showcasing the diversity of talented local performers, artisans, cultural craftsmen through distinct activities and exhibits, educating the community wherein difference is looked upon as an asset, and where curiosity and a desire to engage are the first response to difference. Educational programs throughout the week include Latino and Asian Community Luncheons. The week concludes with the Cotton Club, a celebration of our community history and a salute to Fannie Mae Duncan.
