Living the Culture
The city of Clearwater is launching an events series called “Living the Culture” which will celebrate the beauty of cultural diversity and promote the value of embracing living together in harmony.
The first event in the Living the Culture series, “Taste of Ethnicity,” is taking place Saturday, May 20, 2023, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., on the 600 Block of Cleveland Street, Downtown Clearwater. This inaugural culture festival, hosted in collaboration with the City of Clearwater’s Office of Diversity and Equity Services, will be held annually to commemorate World Diversity Day.
Our goal is to celebrate the vast array of cultures and heritages represented in Clearwater through art, food, and performances, and to bring awareness, education and family fun to Downtown Clearwater.
The event will begin with a short foot parade from East Avenue to Garden Avenue and promises to celebrate and showcase all cultures. Throughout the day, the event will feature various cultural cuisine offerings, amazing performances, a world of art displays and other vendors for everyone to explore and enjoy.
The “Living the Culture” series will continue with events in June to celebrate Pride and Juneteenth, and in September to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.
Living the Culture: Taste of Ethnicity is free to attend, and free parking is available throughout Downtown Clearwater.
