The Hollymead Heritage Festival Is January 26th!

Dear Hollymead Families,

The annual Heritage Festival is just weeks away! It will take place at Hollymead Elementary School on Friday, January 26th at 6:30pm-8:30pm. We will celebrate the many cultures and ethnic backgrounds represented in our school and in our community. This will be a great opportunity for all.

In order to make this year a success, we ask you to consider participating by:

  • bringing food for others to sample
  • wearing or displaying clothing traditional to your culture
  • creating a display of books, artifacts, or pictures
  • demonstrating a traditional dance
  • sharing various types of music
  • and/or numerous other activities that might represent your cultural heritage and traditions

We have had tremendous participation by Hollymead families in the past and look forward to even more this year!

If you are willing to do any of the above, please complete the reservation form and send it to school with your child(ren) no later than Tuesday, January 16th. We need your information early so that we are able to plan prior to the event. Everyone is invited to come, so you don’t have to create a display or presentation, or donate additional time in order to attend. The festival is a celebration of the diversity of our school community and we invite all families to join us. Furthermore, whether you’re sharing or just attending the event, it will be an evening well spent!

The Registration form can be found here: HF Letter 17-18 Registration Form

If you have any questions regarding how you might participate, please contact Becky Brown ( via email or by calling 434-973-8301.

We are looking forward to a great event as we celebrate the beautiful cultures of Hollymead! See you on Friday, January 26th!
