The Festival is about celebrating who the people are in our community. We continue each year with or without the needed sponsorships because the unique character of this celebration is that the community insists on self expression with collaboration from various ethnic groups coming together in the spirit of unity; volunteering their skills and talents wherever needed to ensure a beautiful day of cultural camaraderie. In essence, this extraordinary event comes together by the people for the people.
Your support will ensure the success of our inspiration for the 2011 Festival of Unity. Our 7th Annual event continues to demonstrate the cultural richness of Lackawanna County. Every year this Festival grows in popularity because of our multi-diverse representation and family oriented atmosphere.
In past years we have provided cultural expressions of Arabian, African American, Haitian, Indonesian, Jamaican, Latino, Native Americans, Nepali Bhutanese, and Russian heritages; performed and presented by people right here in our community. This year we are reaching out to even more cultural groups anticipating increased response.
Lackawanna County is known and appreciated for the many outstanding heritage celebrations that are unique to our area. The Festival of Unity is increasingly appreciated for its uniqueness in bringing these different cultures together under one sky for a day of fellowship; learning about and enjoying each other’s heritage.
Our mission is “To inspire social interaction of all cultures in Lackawanna County and make as our collective volition–the building of “One True Community.”

The Annual Festival of Unity is about celebrating the people of our community. This festival continues each year with or without the contributions of Sponsors. The Unique character of this Unity Festival is that the people in the community come together in the spirit of harmony volunteering their skills and talents for a beautiful day of cultural food, fun, and fellowship. In essence, for the past seven years this extraordinary event is mostly sponsored by the people for the people.
The goal of this festival is not create a target market for organizations and businesses to sell their products and services to; but rather to partner with the organizations and businesses that truly care enough about the people in the community they serve to give something back. Thus our sponsors over the past seven years are real supporters of “One True Community” and we appreciate their continued support and are grateful for the support of the people in our community.
It is our hope to have an exceptional celebration for the 2011 7th Annual Festival of Unity and highlight the many wonderful cultures and heritage expression within our community. In the Spirit of Unity, your donations are needed and appreciated to ensure our success.
“I Thank each and all of you who have participated over the years and continue to support the Festival of Unity!”—Diane V. Boone, Founder/Organizer
“It is always an honor to be a part of the Festival of Unity. The participants in this festival are all driven to make this world a more accepting place. It is one of the few events that not only shows an equality of artistic talent across the world but also provides a forum for enlightenment. If more festivals like this existed, people would respect the beauty and struggle of other cultures. It is my hope that the Festival of Unity continues to grow every year.” – Rachel Dare
