2010 SoRo Community Festival

The 13th Annual SoRo Community Festival will take place on Sunday, June 6, 2010 from 11 am to 4 pm. The Festival is located on South Robertson Boulevard, between Cattaraugus and Beverlywood St. (just north of Hamilton High School and the 10 Freeway).

The goals of the SoRo Community Festival are to build bridges amongst our neighbors, local businesses and public service organizations and to celebrate the cultural diversity of our community. The Festival will include activities for kids, ethnic food, a live music stage and lots of exciting artist and vendor booths. Plus this year, the Festival will feature as special section where you can obtain free information regarding Emergency Preparedness for you and your family.

Admission to the Festival is FREE. Street parking is available. We look forward to seeing you at this year's festival!
