​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​KALEIDOSCOPE: Virtual Celebration

October 1 - 31, 2020​

FREE


Participate in a virtual celebration of the Coppell community! This year, Kaleidoscope: A Celebration of Art and Cultures will be observed virtually throughout the entire month of October.

Kaleidoscope began in 2017 as a festival of art and culture to spotlight the growing diversity in the Coppell community. Traditionally, the event features cuisine, artisans, performers, and local organizations representative of the range of cultures in Coppell. ​​​


Curating the culture in Coppell

September 1 - 21 

The event’s virtual platform will showcase the unique community fabric in Coppell, and this year residents are invited to contribute to the celebration. From September 1 through September 21, residents can email stories and/or photos of cherished elements of their culture, from cuisine to traditional dress to home décor to parks@coppelltx.gov. Participants are also encouraged to send recipes for a favorite dish, or a sentence or two highlighting favorite things about their culture. Staff will compile the information submitted to create a Coppell Cultural Scrapbook to be shared online.
