Celebrating diversity for the sixth year, the Wyandotte County Ethnic Festival
encourages people to expand their personal borders and get a little closer to KC's varied cultures. People can browse at more than 50 booths representing different countries and organizations, purchase and sample foods, and feast on performances by native musicians and dancers, jazz poets and rappers. A silent-auction fundraiser is held on-site featuring donations from 35 local businesses. The festival is at the Kansas City, Kansas, Community College Field House (7250 State Avenue,
913-334-1100) and runs from 11:30 a.m. to
5:30 p.m. Admission and parking are free. See freewebs.com/wycoethnicfestival
