Cultural Enrichment Program Enriquecimiento Cultural
We strive to add value to our communities by providing cultural events and activities that enrich Central Oregon. We sometimes take the lead on projects and sometimes we support projects of other community groups. These events and activities provide a crucial space where members of our communities from all corners of the world can interact in positive, productive ways to enrich their lives, feel good about who they are, and build a more cohesive, resilient society.
Cultural Events and Activities we provide or have provided:
- Latino Film Fiesta (March) now cancelled due to our need to focus resources on fewer events.
- Festival of Cultures (4th Saturday in September)
- Fiesta del Sol (August) postponed since 2009
- Independence Celebration (September 16) now combined with Festival of Cultures
- Day of the Dead/Dia de los Muertos (October 31-November 1) now First Friday Art Walk event
