General Ethnic Event Tips
The first step to planning a successful ethnic event is to conduct some research into what cuisine, activities, traditions, music, and attire best represent that culture. Learn about the history of the holiday or tradition.
Ethnic festivals, parades and parties make great fundraising events. The community may be more inclined to participate knowing that proceeds will benefit a charity or organization.
Hire a DJ that can provide a variety of culturally-appropriate music for the event. Consider hiring a professional to teach ethnic dance lessons during the event as a fun activity.
Look into traditional costumes or attire for the particular culture and dress accordingly. Encourage others to dress the part with prizes or other incentives.
