From the American Civic Association:
BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – This summer, the American Civic Association will celebrate its
mission to embrace diversity and promote cultural understanding through our annual MultiEthnic Garlic Festival. For over 80 years, the American Civic Association has welcomed immigrants and refugees to the Southern Tier and helped them succeed in their new community.
The organization’s motto is “building bridges of understanding across cultures” because of the
focus on highlighting and celebrating each individual’s unique background and culture. In that
spirit, this August the American Civic Association will host its largest yearly event: 17th Annual
Multi-Ethnic Garlic Festival.
Event Details – Date: Saturday August 28, 2021 – Time: 11am-6pm
Location: American Civic Association – 131 Front Street, Binghamton, NY 13905
The 17th Annual Multi-Ethnic Garlic Festival will be a day full of cultural performances from
around the world, ethnic and garlicky foods, and a large variety of local garlic, produce and craft
vendors! The organization asks interested vendors, volunteers, cultural performers and sponsors
to please contact email@example.com if you are interested in getting involved.
We invite our community members to please stop by to try garlic-flavored ice cream, garlic
sausages, and other delicious food at the festival! Attendees can also enjoy the music and
performances, participate in a fun raffle, and see the work of other local businesses in action. The
Garlic Festival is the organization’s largest fundraising event, and after a full year where no
events could be held, this year’s festival is sure to be special.
