Communications Staff

All are invited to celebrate Oberlin on Saturday, September 26 in Tappan Square for Oberlin’s annual Community and Culture Festival.

The event, which takes place from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., celebrates Oberlin's diversity and creativity, featuring food and activities from around the world as well as live performances. The festival will feature a Chinese lion dance, tango dancing, acrobatics by OCircus, and musical performances by OSteel, the Conservatory Jazz Band, OC Taiko, Oberlin High School's Marching Band, Voices for Christ, and the Obertones. Local community and non-profit organizations such as the Oberlin Heritage Center, The Bridge, and the Firelands Association for the Visual Arts will have activities and materials available. Other family friendly activities include craft making, face painting, inflatable bounce houses, and voter registration. Oberlin’s local restaurants will be represented at the festival's "Tastefully Oberlin," where they will provide options to sample and purchase some of their popular dishes.

The festivities are sponsored by Oberlin's International Student Organization (ISO), the city of Oberlin, the Oberlin College Office of Community and Government Relations, and the Oberlin Center for Languages and Cultures (OCLC).

They are looking for volunteers to sign up for 1-2 hour shifts to help with setup, cleanup, water stations, monitoring inflatable attractions to ensure children are safe, and other needs as they arise. To sign up for a shift (or as many as you would like!) please click to sign up on this Google Doc.
