DELRAY BEACH, Fla. - Feb. 22, 2022 - PRLog -- For more than a decade, the All People's Day Diversity Festival has brought people from all backgrounds to Delray Beach's Pompey Park for a day of celebration that includes art, music, dance and outstanding activities for children and adults.
This year, as the free indoor festival returns on Saturday March 19 following an absence due to the COVID 19 pandemic, it arrives with an added importance.
"We need All People's Day today more than ever," says Susan Berkowitz-Schwartz, the founder and president of All People's Day (APD). "Because of the situation in the world right now, many people are against one another instead of being for each other."
Bringing people together to share cultures has been the goal of the festival, which Berkowitz-Schwartz ran in New Jersey for 35 years before bringing it to Delray Beach.
"In order to make the world a better place, we have to find out about people who are different from us," she said. "The 13th Annual All People's Day Diversity Festival will be a day of fun but it is also an opportunity to connect with people of diverse cultures. All People's Day is really about learning from one another through the arts."
Presented by All People's Day Inc., the Lake Worth Interfaith Network and the Delray Beach Parks and Recreation Department, the festival features free admission, free arts and crafts and even free food from several cultural restaurants.
The main event runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. It features as many as 15 different local performing groups, among which are the Delray Divas, Carol Garrett's Jewish Soul, Chinese Performing Arts and Anthony Bacchus with the Milagro Center Kids Drum Circle.
All People's Day has three traditions – the Craft Dough People, the Symbol, and Origami Peace Cranes.
Prior to the main event, from 9:30 to 11 a.m., Berkowitz-Schwartz will host a free workshop for up to 30 children from 4 to 11 years old, where they will learn to create Craft Dough People comprised of different skin colors. Pre-registration is required and can be completed by contacting her at or  (561) 495-9818. "The lesson is that we're all made from the same materials and therefore we should all be treated with equal respect," she said.
The festival also includes more than 50 interactive merchandise booths featuring a diverse mix of things to see and do. Kids will find additional free arts projects such as puppet making with a stage to perform and face painting. Teens and adults enjoy hands on issue-based activities including interactive word games by nonprofits, a health fair, an Issues Mural, and an opportunity to take a selfie with life-size diversity figures.  Also present will be items for sale such as artwork, books, T-shirts, and more.
