Lexington Parks and Recreation organizes multiple special events throughout the year and two annual festivals: the Multicultural Festival and the Fantastic 4th Celebration. Both festivals involve hundreds of volunteers and sponsors and draw thousands of attendees from Lexington and beyond.  

Multicultural Festival - First Saturday in May

The Multicultural Festival is a day filled with the sights, sounds and tastes of foreign lands. This event offers a wonderful and educational outing for the entire family and showcases cultural diversity through elaborate costumes, musical instruments, exhibits and entertainment.

The festival focuses on five major cultural areas: African American, European, Asian, Latino, and Native American, with many nationalities represented within them. Stages will feature entertainment from around the world. Visitors will experience new vendors and performers as well as family favorites, and be immersed in a variety of different cultures from around the world!

This festival is free to the public, and attracts thousands of people, from Davidson County and surrounding cities and states. This is THE must-see event of 2019, and was voted as the BEST EVENT IN DAVIDSON COUNTY in the 2019 Reader's Choice Awards held by The Dispatch of Lexington!
