The 20th annual Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival brought more than 50 cultures together.

The festival kicked off Friday night with an interfaith service before continuing Saturday at Centennial Park.

 

 

Six different stages were set up for people to experience the music and dance of various countries.

People also enjoyed a market to purchase hand-crafted items from around the world and food vendors.

 

 

The main goal was to bring everyone together to show common ground.

"It's really just awesome to see the kids playing together and people sampling foods and one of our food vendors was without a power cord so another food vendor went to the store and got a power cord, so it's just all about a hospitable environment right now,” said Cindy Politte.

Celebrate Nashville's mission has been to continue uniting cultures around the city.
