Gilman parents, children, faculty, staff, and friends are all welcome and encouraged to attend!

We ask that members of our community share with others: Please bring a non-perishable food item for the Donald Bentley Food Pantry.


Learn first-hand about the many cultures and ethnicities within the Gilman community. Items are displayed that represent specific elements of a culture. These displays include books, music, clothes, art, cultural artifacts, pictures, and videos.


Taste some of the most delicious ethnic dishes from around the world, all prepared by volunteers and exhibitors. Ingredients for each food item will be displayed to accommodate those with dietary restrictions.


Experience music, dance, martial arts, and storytelling as our exhibitors, volunteers, and friends share talents reminiscent of their respective cultures.
