The annual Celebration of Cultures festival will be held at Centennial Park on Saturday, October 7, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

This event is free and open to the public. The Scarritt-Bennett Center has hosted the festival for several years to give attendees a glimpse into the cultures of distant and diverse nations and to showcase the changing face of Nasvhille through music, food, art, and exhibitions. The festival features a kids area, a World Market with original arts and crafts and food from various countries around the world.

International medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders (will present a special exhibit, "A Refugee Camp in the Heart of the City," from October 4-8 in conjunction with the festival. This is an interactive exhibit highlighting the living conditions of 33 million people around the world who have been forced to live as refugees because of violence and persecution. Nashville is one of only four sites in the nation (New York, Brooklyn and Atlanta) hosting this very significant exhibit this fall, so don't miss it!
