Sign up now for Twinbrook Multicultural Day

Community members are invited to share a culture they know well with their neighbors during Twinbrook Multicultural Day on Saturday, May 16 in Rockville.

The festival, from 4 – 7 p.m. at Twinbrook Community Recreation Center, at 12920 Twinbrook Parkway, will feature cultural exhibits, performances and presentations, and food representing the people and cultures of the growing community. The festival is free and open to all.

“Twinbrook Multicultural Day will celebrate our growing and diverse community,” said Kelley Day, supervisor of the Twinbrook Community Recreation Center. “It’s an opportunity for neighbors to connect with each other by sharing their global experiences and cultures.”

Community members are encouraged to sign up by May 8 to exhibit facts and artifacts of their native country, including its flag, language and cultural items, such as currency, native dress, music, games and other hands-on activities. Presentations or performances, or video clips of cultural presentations, are also welcome. Attendees will get to know their neighbors as they visit the exhibits and learn about their neighbors’ native culture.

For more information, including how to participate, contact Kelley Day at or 240.314.8833.
