Every year since 1995, the Multicultural Festival is presented by the City of Oxnard’s Community Relations Commission. The commission consists of seven members and is a citizen advisory group whose mission is to promote understanding and respect among all racial, religious and nationality groups in the City and to discourage and prevent discriminatory practices. The festival is organized by the commission, City of Oxnard staff and volunteers.
The festival is held annually on the first Saturday of October and celebrates the rich cultural diversity of the City’s residents and history. People of every culture come together to learn and discover their shared values in an atmosphere that honors all.
The Multicultural Festival offers a variety of performing groups, live music, food vendors, exhibitors, demonstrations, and hands on activities for the entire family. Admission is always free.
