DiverseCity


DIVERSECITY SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 17  11AM-7PM

DiverseCity is a multicultural festival that celebrates and unifies the cultural cornerstones of various heritages through live music, food, artisans, vendors and more. POPS will be transformed into a marketplace of cultural favorites paired with jamming music for a sizzling family fiesta. This integrated event will feature something for everyone, and attendees can journey through various represented countries and experience their people, music, art, food and culture. DiverseCity was inspired by the festival of the same name in our sister city - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island.

Admission is free to the public, and the event is kid-friendly. Booth vendors will set up throughout the park that offer different experiences like handmade art exhibits, information about cultural programs in Rutherford County, face painting and more. We will have concessions from Explore Forest City, food trucks, games and more. We believe that this is a great way for us to come together as a community to showcase all of the amazing cultural opportunities that are available in Rutherford County!

Please contact 828.245.0365 or info@townofforestcity.com for more information. We’re looking forward to seeing you at POPS!
