Hastings College celebrates an annual Cultural Festival in efforts to bring together the College and community as one through food, music and dance. The festival, which is free and open to the public, will take place Sunday, November 12, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Kiewit Gymnasium (715 E. 7th Street).
The goal of the celebration is to showcase various cultures present in the city of Hastings and to create a common ground for people in the community, as well as getting to know one another, create new friendships and show good neighborliness on campus and throughout the community.
Organizations from the College and community are encouraged to set up a booth of any cultural background and/or sponsor a group to present a performance at the event.
The festival is an effort of the College’s Multicultural Student Union (MSU) and Diversity Team in collaboration with the Hastings YWCA and Multicultural Association of Hastings to promote diversity and inclusion in the community.
