Taste of Culture: Flavors from around the world

Bring all of the cultures of Northwest Louisiana together and you get one awesome party.

Experience the culinary cultures that make up the rich diversity and history of Shreveport and Northwest Louisiana at the annual “The Taste of Culture” event. The Multicultural Center of the South will present their annual fundraiser on Saturday, July 27, 2019. The party lasts from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Bid at the silent auction while enjoying great music. All while sampling and feasting upon culinary dishes from 26 cultures that make up the cultural tapestry of Shreveport-Bossier. Some of the selections will be Native American, Creole, Asian, Hispanic, German, Cajun, Middle Eastern, Indian, African-American, and more. This is the perfect opportunity to expand your palate at “The Taste of Culture.” Plus help out a great non-profit organization.

The Multicultural Center of the South’s mission is to educate the general public and visitors about the rich diversity and history of Shreveport-Bossier, Northwest Louisiana and the South. Established in 1999, the Center is Louisiana’s only multicultural center. Located at 520 Spring Street in the heart of downtown Shreveport, the Center hosts numerous cultural exhibits, musical programs, artistic endeavors, and demonstrations that encourage visitors to take a vicarious journey to distant lands to learn about the practices and traditions transported to this country by long-ago and present day immigrants. For more information, visit their website.

Check out their Christmas Around the World display every December as well.
