Bucks Culture Fest at Community College in #NewtownPA

The inaugural Bucks Culture Fest — an event intended to unite the community, while showcasing a myriad of cultures through live entertainment and interactive learning — will be held at Bucks County Community College Newtown Campus at 275 Swamp Road on Sunday, April 28 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.




Arya Haridas is one of the featured performers at Bucks Culture Fest, presenting Bharatnatyam, a classical dance form that originated in southern India. Bharatnatyam requires years of training, which Haridas completed in 2022 with a 3-hour solo stage performance called Arangetram.

The idea came about last summer, when Angela Nutter, director of Doylestown Juneteenth, approached Jean Dolan, the college’s coordinator of DEI and community engagement, about collaborating on a free family-friendly event.


“I see the changing face of Bucks County and I really wanted to highlight some of those people in our community that maybe don’t feel represented. I also wanted to highlight those who have helped to build our community,” Nutter said.

It is with great excitement that we present the inaugural Bucks Culture Fest at the Newtown campus of Bucks County Community College on Sunday, April 28!

This is a grassroots effort started by ordinary community members to showcase, educate, and honor the many people who have built our rich Bucks County community.

The event will be FREE to all community members. We hope that you will be able to join us to be part of Bucks Culture Fest featuring local vendors, artisans, service groups and non-profit organizations.  We are grateful to Bucks County Community College for hosting us this year. The school has been wonderful to work with in coordinating this event that can be uplifting to all.
