This multicultural celebration will take place from noon to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 10, at the Munson Museum of Art and is sponsored by Access Federal Credit Union, The Sentinel Media Company and WKTV.

“Food and Art Unite,” suitable for all ages, highlights the rich global palette and cultural cuisine enjoyed in Utica. Attendees will have the opportunity to sample dishes from a variety of area restaurants representing different cultural backgrounds and enjoy live music and performances, creating an immersive experience that celebrates the diverse communities in Utica.
