This celebration focuses on the importance of the next generation, our children! Deriving from the rich ethnic and cultural tapestry in our community, the Festival strives to provide an environment that will enrich while entertain the young members of our society.  Inspired by the nation-wide celebrations that have been taking place in Turkey for the past 85 years as a national holiday, this is a children’s version of the international festival where children are exposed to our area’s colorful cultural mosaic.

Organized by

American Turkish Association of NC and

Sister Cities Association of Cary

Supported in part by a grant from the Lazy Daze Arts & Crafts Festival – a Cary-based festival supporting local arts and non-profit organizations’ cultural activities
