About

Volunteer for the eighth annual All People’s Day Diversity Festival that will take place indoors on Saturday, March 19, 2016 at PompeyPark, 1101 NW 2 nd Street, Delray Beach, FL 33444. This is the second year, DelrayParks and Recreation joins All People’s Day, Inc. and the National Coalition of 100 Black Women, South Palm Beach Chapter, in presenting the free festival offering a wide variety of connective activities for the whole family.

From 9:30 am to 11 am only, is a children’s craft workshop followed by the APD main performance events from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Twenty dazzling performances of dance, music, and social theatre compose the main event. Beautifully costumed African-American, Chinese, Haitian, European, Middle-Eastern, Latino performers and a variety of other artists take to the stage in 15 minute intervals treating the attendees to a vast array of cultural experiences.

During the main events over 50 interactive and merchandise booths feature a diverse mix to see and do. Kids will find arts projects such as Japanese Origami Peace Crane folding, puppet making with a stage to perform, and creating images of their families that connect to others on a mural. Teens and adults enjoy hands on issue-based activities among which are a health fair and clever word games by nonprofits. For sale items include original artwork and jewelry, stylish tee-shirts, and mouthwatering international cuisine. A raffle with prizes donated by local artists and businesses will be held throughout the day.

The free workshop from 9:30 am to 11:00 am will teach children to make the Craft Dough People, a visual illustration that all people are made from the same materials and should therefore be treated with equal respect. Pre-registration for the workshop is open to the first 30 kids, age’s four to eleven, who sign-up by calling (561) 495-9818. A packaged craft kit, based on this project, will be available for groups of five or ten for a small donation.
