OWENSBORO, Ky. (WEHT) – The 22nd annual Owensboro Multicultural Festival which over the years has drawn thousands of people to the First Presbyterian Church’s lawn for food, music, and intercultural learning, will be held online this year due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The online event will include:

  • A virtual “people’s parade”
  • Video highlights of Owensboro’s multicultural food scene
  • Musical Performances
  • A scavenger hunt to help young people understand global cultures
  • Art projects that can be done at home
