We started in 2022 as a group of Quincy Public School families—immigrants and first-generation mothers with backgrounds from five different countries—who desired to belong and to see our diverse cultures represented and appreciated. We knew many similar families who were also looking to make connections within the vibrant, multicultural city of Quincy. The wish to connect made us work together to create a space where everyone is welcomed and appreciated. We had the idea that sharing food along with dance and music would bring people together and give them a chance to connect. This gave birth to the idea of a Quincy Multicultural Festival. We collaborated with Quincy Public Schools and had the first Quincy Multicultural Festival on May 5th, 2022. Quincy Public Schools represents more than 80 different cultures, and this festival gave us an opportunity to appreciate and celebrate this amazing diversity. Quincy Public Schools families showcased their cultures through food, music, performances, and cultural attire. The festival attracted over 1,000 attendees. This gave us a great deal of encouragement to make this event an annual affair. In 2023, Quincy Multicultural Festival became a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
The mission of the Quincy Multicultural Festival is to celebrate the heritage, culture, and traditions that represent the diverse families of Quincy through social and learning experiences and to foster a sense of belonging and inclusion for all families.
