Cultural Celebrations

From performances and activities to virtual events, there’s truly something for the entire family! Programs include: Chuseok, Filipinx American History Month Celebration, Diwali, Bell Ringing Ceremony, Lunar New Year, Nowruz, and AAPI Heritage Month Celebration.

Diwali

Diwali is known as the Festival of Lights and comes from the Sanskrit word, Dipawali, which literally means “row of lights.” Diwali is celebrated by Hindus, Jains, and Sikhs around the world to mark the beginning of the new year according to the Indian lunar calendar, and falls on the darkest night of the year, usually in late October or early November.

Filipino American History Month

Celebrated in October, Filipino American (Fil-Am) History Month honors the history, pursuits, accomplishments, and legacy of Filipinos in the United States. It also serves to provide a link between Filipinos in the U.S. and Filipinos in the Philippines by showcasing their shared culture and heritage.
