Unity Festival

The annual Unity Festival (or Festival of Unity) is being held in Scranton's Nay Aug Park on Saturday, July 9, 2011.  The organizers have a blog with information about the upcoming Festival, as well as posts about past Festivals stretching back to 2008.

From their About page:

This multicultural celebration continues to demonstrate the rich diversity of people in the communities of Northeast Pennsylvania and more specifically Lackawanna County.  Every year this festival grows in popularity because of our multi-ethnic representation and family oriented atmosphere that has attracted thousands of visitors and vendors from as far as New Jersey, New York, and Ohio.

...This intimate community event successfully began in 2005 in celebration of Melanian News bridging the gap to the merging cultures in Northeast Pennsylvania. It is our hope to continue it each year as an integral part of the unique heritage celebrations throughout our area. The festival is free to the public and all proceeds cover event expenses, planning, and community initiatives that improve the quality of life in NEPA.

And from this post:

Scranton is the First city in Northeast Pennyslvania to have an all inclusive cultural celebration that is beginning to take this nation by storm. Let’s not just be the first, Let’s be the best! Come on board for an inspiring day of fellowship under ONE sky….Leave NO one out…Come Celebrate ONE True community with us at Nay Aug Park, Saturday July 9, 2011.
