Get global with the OneWorld Multicultural Festival, Feb 25

It was one of the very last Okanagan events to come off as planned before the world shut down for COVID in early 2020. And as always, it was a thrilling multicultural extravaganza well worth the time of anyone who showed up.

And a lot of people did.

But that was it. In 2021 and 2022 it was forced to go "virtual" -- a pale imitation of the "live" experience.

Now in 2023, it's back.

For five straight hours that Saturday, there'll be dancing, there'll be music, there'll be food, there'll be stories, there'll be products, there'll be colours and there'll be conversation from across the globe.
