The Central Astoria Local Development Coalition, an Astoria-based not-for-profit organization, is pleased to announce their 2nd annual International Cultural Festival. There will be representatives from a great variety of countries demonstrating the music and dance of their cultures, reflecting the rich diversity and happy confluence of values that make up Astoria.

The performers will include Ballet Los Pampas from Argentina, McManus Irish Dance from Ireland, Ayazamana Cultural Center from Ecuador, Croatian Church NYC, the Korean Music and Dance Center, Greek dancing from Crete, the Braata Folk Singers from the Caribbean/Jamaica, KUD Halaturko from Bosnia, and NYC Bhangra from India.

Following up on the success and feedback of the first celebration, the second festival will include the same exciting singing and dancing performances, as well as fun activities for the whole family.

For more information please visit the Central Astoria LDC website , contact CALDC at [email protected], or call (718) 728-7820.

The program is supported by NYC Council Member Costa Constantinides, and in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
