The 11th annual “FESTIVAL OF SHARING ROOTS” will be held on Sunday, September 7th, 2014 from Noon until 5:30 PM. It will be held on the St. Joseph Church parish grounds at 414 North St. Pittsfield, MA. Hosted by St. Joseph Parish, this event highlights the many cultures that comprise the parish community. Key to the festival is bringing people together after the 9/11 tragedy in a peaceful way and recognizing the diversity of people and families working together, having fun, sharing food and heritage for the glory of God and the USA. The event has been a huge success in the past ten years, and we are looking forward to another great year. Admission is free. The booths will represent seven international cuisines each serving their favorite specialty. Those represented are American, African, Brazilian, French, Irish, Italian and Polish.
Activities will start and booths will open at 12 Noon. Entertainment will begin at 12:30 PM featuring local vocalists, musicians and dance groups. Also being offered are raffles, crafts and a tag sale. The craft and tag sale will start at 9 AM.
Once again there will be a free Kiddy Land and Bounce House. The clowns, Stickers and Peachy, will be doing face painting, balloon sculptures and a walk around the festival from 1 PM until 4 PM.
Bring your lawn chair for an afternoon of fun and enjoyment.
