Join us for a day of international festivals presented in collaboration with Concordia Language Villages and Ragamala Dance Company. Gallery admission is free for everyone on the first Saturday of each month from 10 am to 6 pm, with a variety of family activities scheduled from 10 am to 3 pm.
Concordia Language Villages’ expert educators engage families with cultural traditions from around the world. Learn about France’s Fête des Lumières, the Nordic Summer Solstice, the Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival (中秋節 or 中秋节) … and maybe even pick up some new vocabulary words. Create masks, dance around a maypole, listen to moon-viewing stories, and much more.
Ragamala presents its 3rd annual Ode to Navarathri festival. In Southern India, Navarathri is commemorated with a Navarathri Kolu, a time when families welcome neighbors into their homes for a celebration rooted in the sharing of art. Ragamala’s gathering includes a traditional south Indian kolu, curated performances by local artists and community members, and a kolam rice flour design workshop.
Ragamala is looking for musicians, dancers, and performers of all abilities and skill levels. If you would like to perform as a part of Ode to Navarathri, please fill out this form.
