Laguna Culture Fest kicks off in Elk Grove

The Laguna Culture Fest, going on from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., will have food, entertainment, and information booths.

ELK GROVE, Calif. — Elk Grove held its first-ever Laguna Culture Fest on Saturday at the Laguna Town Hall and Amphitheater. 

The festival runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is being presented by local non-profits and more. Sacramento's own Larrisah Jackson, 15, who was a contestant on "The Voice", is also scheduled to be in attendance.

Diversity is the overarching theme of the festival, and it is meant to recognize diverse cultures, provide a better understanding and appreciate each and everyone's culture, Dr. Rick Warren, President of Black Expo Events, told ABC10.

“Diversity is inevitable in today’s times, and acceptance of other cultures is not a vital component to all of our successes, it is how [to] become educated and aware of all the goodness that we can bring to one another,” said Rashid Sidqe, CEO of LULA.  

Dr. Warren's message to people is to "come out and have a good time, appreciate different cultures that make Elk Grove a good place to visit."

"I want this to be an opportunity where people grow tolerant of different cultures," Dr. Warren said.
