The purpose of the fair is to celebrate diversity of all kinds among our employees, provide education and promote tolerance.
Here are some ways you can help:
- Submit a family recipe! The recipes will become part of a cook-booklet available at the fair, and several recipes will be chosen by Nutrition and Food Services to be showcased at the fair, as well.
- Suggest or participate in an entertainment group! We are looking for a variety of performances and demonstrations: music, dance, poetry, fashion show, storytelling, etc.
- Create an exhibit! We are looking for displays of art, clothing, crafts, books and other information that expresses and celebrates your culture and traditions – even if you were born and raised in N.C. We also encourage exhibits that show how your department/unit promotes cultural competence.
- Sell your handmade cultural items! Eligible work must be handcrafted by the exhibitor and have cultural significance or background.
