Morrisville, NC – This Saturday, May 18, 2013, Morrisville will host its first East Meets West Festival. It’s a cross-cultural celebration featuring food, music, performances and visual arts highlighting Morrisville’s diverse community.
In a partnership with the Morrisville Innovation center and the Chamber of Commerce, the festival started from the idea of a much smaller event held last year called a Taste of Morrisville.
Featured foods include Indian, Asian, American, European and new trends in food fusion. Participating restaurants and vendors include Georgina’s, Taste Vietnamese Cuisine, 5 Hot Chillies, Peppers Market and Sandwich Shop, Mare, Buffalo Wings & Rings, Saffron Indian Cuisine, It’s A Grind, Urbana Catering Concepts, Doherty’s Irish Pub, Neomonde, and Muddy Dog Roasting Company.
Participants can vote for their favorite dishes in the “Feast of the East & Best of the West” contest.
2 Performance Stages
Two stages will be set up for bands and other performers throughout the day. A Fifth of Blues and the Will McBride Group, two of the Triangle’s most popular bands, will perform on the West Stage near the beer garden.
The East stage by the Indian Creek Greenway Trailhead will feature Bollywood, Indian folk and Asian dance groups and performers showcasing a variety of cultures.
Kids’ activities make the event fun for the whole family.
