Medfield Together and Bellforge Arts Center Present: CultureFest


(Medfield, MA): In partnership with Bellforge Arts Center, Medfield Together invites you to join us
on Oct. 8, 2022 for CultureFest. This FREE family-friendly festival aims to bring our community
together in celebration of and learning about the customs, traditions, artwork, music, and food of
diverse people within and around our town.

“The incentive for CultureFest was twofold: to celebrate diversity by centering the cultural
traditions of an array of people and to learn about multiculturalism in a fun and engaging
atmosphere,” says Medfield Together Steering Committee member Lauren Zembron.
Everyone is welcome to attend this fun day out that will include performers, kids’ activities, and
ethnic food trucks. CultureFest runs from 10 am to 3 pm at Bellforge Arts Center, located at 45
Hospital Road (https://bellforge.org/getting-here/). There is plenty of free parking and visitors are
encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs to enjoy the festival.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Medfield Together for CultureFest and to provide the
opportunity to celebrate so many cultures through art, dance, music and food,” says Jean
Mineo, Bellforge Arts Center’s Executive Director.
