International Community Day Event
Description:
The International Community Day Committee has been active in sponsoring community experiences in Ridgecrest since January, 2016. Our goal is to celebrate Ridgecrest’s diverse and varied population.

On September 14th we intend to expand upon last year’s experience which included a parade of nations and presentations from entertainers representing Taiwan, Mainland China, Mexico, Philippines, Korea, India, Viet Nam, United Kingdom, Columbia, Hawaii, Russia, and the USA. Also participating this year will be Big Band Express, Boy Scouts Color Guard and numerous community dancers and singers. Several organizations like the Elks, Lions Club, Ridgecrest Regional Hospital and Cerro Coso Community College will also participate: making this a genuine, unscripted community triumph.

We are planning another huge potluck at Kerr McGee beginning at 5:30 pm on September 14th. Our objective is to offer an atmosphere where everyone will appreciate getting to know their neighbors in the Indian Wells Valley. The public will be invited to enjoy cuisine from around the world, (and encouraged to contribute their favorite dishes as well). In addition to food, numerous groups and organizations will share their rich customs through performance, music and table displays of cultural heritage.

This event is community based and open to all without charge. Come celebrate Ridgecrest's wonderful diversity.
