9th Annual Multicultural Festival takes place Saturday in Penticton – Penticton Western News

A showcase of diverse traditions, dance, food and art will be presented in Penticton on Saturday afternoon (February 26).

The ninth annual OneWorld Festival is back — virtually — for a celebration of the cultures that make up the community.

The South Okanagan Immigrant and Community Services (SOICS) has partnered with a number of local restaurants to offer specials throughout the day.

• Ashoka Indian cuisine (10% discount on all orders)

• Isshin ($20 OneWorld wetsuit)

• Lachi Fine Indian Cuisine (free pakoras with purchase)

• Le Café de Prague ($4 cakes during the festival)

• EDSA MiniMart (10% discount on all orders)

• Japanese Kitchen Kura (10% discount on all orders from 11:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.)

• Penticton Buffet (10% off all orders, excluding combos)

• Iyara Thai (10% discount on all orders from 4:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.)

More than 35 countries will be represented during the virtual festival starting at 11 a.m. and ending at 4 p.m.

People are asked to mention the OneWorld Festival when ordering from partner restaurants on Saturdays.

Instead of in-person vendors, the eight select restaurants are offering Pentictonians a number of special food promotions.

Immigrant success stories and multicultural performances are included in the day’s festivities.

Community members interested in attending the ninth edition of the festival are asked to visit soics.ca/oneworld for streaming options.
