Winter Holidays Around the Globe Festival

The coming of Winter is celebrated around the globe in both secular and spiritual themes. Join us in music and dance as we close the year behind us and look forward to the new year. We’ll celebrate Christmas, Mexican Las Posadas, Chanukah and Kwanzaa.

Enjoy a full day of fun for the entire family! Each Festival includes complimentary face painting, art projects, live performances, and a unique treat!
