The Local Colors Festival celebrates ethnic heritages from around the globe. Now in its 31st year, this FREE family-friendly fun event is a great way to experience the many different ethnic cultures that are represented in the Roanoke Valley.
The festival opens with a Parade of Nations where residents proudly display their flags of their heritage and cultural dress. After that is an afternoon full of ethnic diversity to enjoy. Taste the dishes of many international cuisines, watch vivid dance and music performances, learn about different cultures from several exhibits, purchase vendor goods representing different cultures, and drink an international beer. Kids can create international crafts in our children's activity area. It's a free family-friendly way to celebrate the bright tapestry that makes Roanoke a welcoming city.
A new feature this year: we will have the LOVE sign for plenty of photo ops!
