2021 Virtual Countryside Multicultural Festival

 

 

 

The Multicultural Festival

The Countryside Multicultural Festival celebrates all of the many cultures that make up our unique community! Due to the pandemic Multicultural Festival this year will be virtual. It will be a showcase of performance and cooking videos by the Countryside children that will highlight your country’s unique culture.

If you would like to participate, please register here. Tell us what country you would like to join. If that country already has a group, we will help you get in touch with the leader. If your country is not yet represented, we will help you get one started! If you have any questions, please email us! Once registered we will provide as much or as little help as you need to create the videos.

 

MCF video details

Performance Video: Each country to create a 5-7 minute performance video. Kids from all grades from your country will practice and perform independently and we can tie that into a collage video of all kids.
(kids from last year’s Countryside 5th grade (current 6th grader) are invited to join us in the performance since MCF was cancelled last year)

Cooking Video: Special treat for the current 5th graders! Submit a cooking video 5-8 minutes long of a traditional recipe from your country. If there are no 5th graders from your country younger grades can create a video!

 

Timeline:

Performance video deadline – Thursday, May 20, 2021

Cooking video deadline – Thursday, May 27, 2021

We will create a playlist of the country performances and cooking videos to release to the countryside community in early June.
