For many years the Harrison Fest committee has run a town wide multicultural event celebrating the many ethnic cultures that make our community so great. Because this event has been so successful every year, the NJ Statewide Multicultural Association has been created and in collaboration with Inceptum Enterprises will be organizing this first annual New Jersey Multicultural Festival in Harrison
We begin our celebrations with a Queen's Gala Dinner on September 15th, where people gather and over 30 countries from around the world are represented.
Saturday and Sunday, September 23 and September 24 a town wide street fair takes place. But first, a multicultural parade begins in the morning of Saturday where over 50 different cultural groups represent their countries in a show of music, dance and costume. Once the parade is complete, the main avenue remains closed leading the way for rides, games, crafts, food, and street vendors.
We are promoting multiculturalism & fundraising for community development, scholarships, thanks giving food baskets for family's in need, over 1000 Christmas dinners, Toys for kids & presents for Seniors.
