The city of Long Beach is gearing up to host the 2014 Unity Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, September 13, at Admiral Kidd Park.
The annual event, now in its 15th year, expects to attract more than 5,000 people from throughout Southern California.
“It is a great way to bring our family, friends, business colleagues, church members and others to celebrate and demonstrate unity,” said the Rev. Stephanie Butler Adams, who founded the festival with her husband, Steve.
“Our mission is to gather diverse communities together through a series of positive, artistic expressions in music and the arts, training workshops, seminars, and live entertainment events while promoting peace, non-violence, and reconciliation among people from various backgrounds and cultures.”
Issuing a call to vendors and artists to participate, the Rev. Adams added that applications are now available at lbunityfestival.com.
“We are so excited to have them join us in our continuing efforts to unite, heal and inspire our communities by providing much needed services and entertainment to our residents,” observed the Rev. Adams.
