Fantastic 4th Celebration
Every July 4th, thousands of people travel from all over the region to attend Lexington's Fantastic 4th Celebration at the Davidson County Fairgrounds! Admission is FREE, and concessions and amusements are available for purchase. Lauren Light will be performing this year, and the highlight of the festival each year is the evening fireworks display!
The 21st Annual Multicultural Festival
was held in the Uptown Lexington Historic District on May 6th from 10:00 am - 5:00pm. The day was filled with the sights, sounds and tastes of foreign lands, and offered a wonderful and educational outing for the entire family! The event showcased cultural diversity through elaborate costumes, musical instruments, exhibits and entertainment, and featured a Naturalization Ceremony where 21 people became US citizens. There were 5 cultural villages highlighted, Latino, African, European, Asian, and Native American, as well as an Middle Eastern exhibit.
These sponsors made the 21st annual event a huge success and we are so appreciative of their desire to promote diversity in Davidson County and beyond. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor or volunteer for the 2018 Multicultural Festival, please contact Andrew Lance.
