Culture Fest Entertainers:

Celebrating Cultural Common Ground

A group of diverse locals have been working with the community to promote cultural harmony based on mutual understanding and respect. Fittingly so, this group is called Common Ground. We believe that by celebrating our diversity, Southwest Louisiana will become a more vibrant and exciting community and be even more attractive to new families, businesses, and industries that are considering locating here. Culture Fest Louisiana is planned for October 26, 2013 at the Lake Charles Civic Center and will showcase the art, music, dance, fashion and food of the different countries represented here. This community event is free to the public and is designed to encourage family participation.
