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


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.
