2014 Multicultural Festival (photos and thanks)

Thank you to all who joined us for the 2nd annual Mansfield ISD Multicultural Festival on Saturday, March 1 at the MISD Center for the Performing Arts.

Once again, thousands of attendees enjoyed a wide array of free activities, games, food, student showcases, performances, and more. We had a steady flow of people all day long.

This year, we decreased the length of the festival to four hours from last year's six. We determined that a slightly shortened event (11am-3pm) would still provide ample time to show off the rich diversity of our district community.

Culinary arts students from Ben Barber Career Tech Academy/Frontier High School provided tasty selection of savory and sweet bites from over a dozen different countries and cultures.

Since this was such a popular feature, attendees were encouraged at each table to scan QR codes on signs to get the recipes from the students and chefs. [Get the recipes.]
