Getting Ready for Unity Fest


On Saturday, Sept. 26, Glendale Arts will be holding its 11th annual Unity Fest. The festivities are from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., and the festival is located on Brand Boulevard, between California and Wilson avenues.

The event focuses on celebrating diversity. Organizers are hoping to once again promote cultural awareness in a way in which people can come out and enjoy themselves while learning about one another’s customs and traditions. It’s also the hope that visitors will learn more about the variety of stores and restaurants that Brand Boulevard has to offer.

A multitude of activities and entertainment will be taking place including live performance groups, food trucks, demonstration tables, children’s activities and arts and crafts vendors. Some of the live entertainment will include the Hoover High School Jazz Band, International Karate Association, DB Dance Center, The Incompletes (classic rock cover band), Djanbazian Dance Academy and more. Some of the food trucks present will be Rounds Premium Burgers, Hungry Nomad, Tornado Potato, The Bun Truck, and Hang 10 Tacos.

Based on the previous year, it is expected that about 3,500 to 5,000 people will attend. Admission is free and free parking is available in the public parking garage on Orange Street.
