The celebration focuses on the importance of the next generation, our children, with the intent of helping them develop an appreciation for the colorful mosaic of cultures in our area. Deriving from the rich ethnic and cultural tapestry in our community, we strive to put together an event that will enrich and entertain the young members of our society. This event is bringing together various visions: It is a mini version of the nation-wide celebrations that have been taking place in Turkey for the past 85 years as a national holiday, a children’s version of the international festival, and an event where children are exposed to several unique art forms.
