INTERNATIONAL CULTURAL CELEBRATION
HONORS THE REGION’S DIVERSITY
SOUTHAMPTON, NY 2/24/11 — After an enthusiastic response from the community to last year’s event, the Parrish Art Museum, in collaboration with the Rogers Memorial Library, will again host the International Cultural Celebration on Sunday, March 6, from 1:30 to 4 pm. Admission is free, and no advance registration is required.
This year’s festival will celebrate the East End’s cultural diversity with traditional dances and music, art workshops, and light refreshments. Scheduled performers include Grupo Folklorico Xochipilli, The Hamptons Hellenic Dancers from the Greek Orthodox Church of Southampton, Kildare Academy of Irish Dance, Kings Chapel Church of God in Christ Showers of Blessings Choir, Shinnecock Thunderbird Singers and Dancers, and an interactive instructional demonstration of Poi Arts by Susan Blacklocke.
The Museum's programs are made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, celebrating 50 years of building strong, creative communities in New York State's 62 counties, and the property taxpayers from the Southampton School District and the Tuckahoe Common School District.
