The annual Arts Festival & International Fair joyfully showcased the cultural heritage of the Rye Country Day community through live music and dance, art projects, and food from around the world.
Students, families, and employees enjoyed performances from a Caribbean steel pan drum duo, RCDS cellists, and an Upper School string quartet. They also admired the choreography of traditional Chinese dancers and got to see a few encore numbers from members of the cast of the US Musical, The Addams Family.
Guests explored their own creativity through a flag coloring activity, a tape art wall mural, block building, face painting, and a collaborative map of the world (with pins representing community members’ regions of origin).
Celebrating cultural diversity through cuisine, a sampling of dishes from six continents was donated by families.
Thank you to the RCDS Parents Association, the Office of Diversity & Inclusion, the Drama & Dance, Music, and Visual Arts Departments for organizing this beloved community event!
