Scarritt-Bennett puts world on display at Celebration of Cultures

"This weekend at Scarritt-Bennett Center ... Nashville's melting pot of cultures simmer together at Middle Tennessee's largest international festival, Celebration of Cultures."

"From educational speakers to foreign foods and kids' activities, culture shock will be a good experience during the two-day event."

"'We say it is like traveling the world without leaving the block,' said Carolyn Oehler, president of Scarritt-Bennett Center. 'People are going to get a taste of all of the cultures in Nashville.'"

"'If we are going to be a city, everyone needs to be included,' Oehler added. 'The festival is a symbol of what Nashville is becoming. As we get to know each other, that fear and anxiety that exists disappears, and we are able to discover and embrace the differences.'"

"Celebration of Cultures is 5:30-8 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Saturday at the Scarritt-Bennett Center, 1008 19th Ave. S."
