Oxford Uptown Parks, Oxford Campus

*"Annual Latin American and Caribbean UniDiversity Festival"*


The UniDiversity Festival is a collaborative effort to promote diversity and inclusion in our community, and it is also a chance to learn more about the peoples and cultures that are quickly emerging as the largest ethnic group in the United States. This festival is the kick-off of a month full of activities encompassed within the National Hispanic Heritage Month.

People have an opportunity to enjoy a taste of some of the finest cuisines from around the world, a unique repertory of music and dances, arts and crafts, children's activities, petting of llamas and alpacas, and display of literature/panels/photo exhibits about Latin America and the Caribbean.
