Year-round Celebrations
of Cultures, Seasons & Holidays

Special Events: holidays and ethnic events

Throughout the year, Habitot celebrates our diverse community with multicultural events and seasonal fun. With special art activities, exhibit activities, storytelling and frequently — dancers, musicians, or other performers — we introduce young children to the art, culture and traditions of families throughout our community.

Join our “Community Connections” advisory group if you are interested in helping Habitot host these events in culturally responsive ways, or if you can connect us with performers, artists or storytellers.
