What are the benefits of being a part of Culture in the Community?

This is an exciting event, drawing thousands of people from around the Bay Area who enjoy multicultural entertainment and food! By performing at this event your group will gain exposure as well as be a part of the dynamic entertainment lineup.

 **Please Note – There will be 2 entertainment stages

  1. Inside the community center in the Fountain Room – flat dance floor, limited audience seating – this will be dedicated to dance
  2. Outside in front of the community center – smaller rented stage, with ample audience seating – this will be dedicated to music, storytelling, puppets, etc.

 How can I/my group apply*?

To be considered, submit your application by August 16, 2019. Please include all information and do not leave sections blank.

 You will be contacted by Event staff regarding your application, and if accepted, a confirmation packet will be sent to you prior to the event. Please note that submitting an application does NOT guarantee that you will be selected to perform.

 *All applications must be submitted online.

 Please note:

Derogatory, discriminatory or otherwise offensive performances will not be allowed on the stages at Culture in the Community. If a performer includes anything in their act that is discriminatory or derogatory against another person, group, or contains offensive language or movements, they will be asked to leave the stage immediately and will not be allowed to perform in any City events in future years.

 *Event staff will determine placement of applicants to maximize the number of performers and acts at the event.
