On May 19, 2019, the Rutherford Civil Rights Commission presented their 16th Annual Multicultural Festival in Lincoln Park. It was a huge success and thousands of people visited the event.


There were many diverse groups performing dances representing some of the following cultural groups: Latin American, Middle Eastern, Brazilian, Peruvian, Persian, Japanese, Native American, American, Bulgarian, etc. There were also a number of singers who performed.


Throughout the park, there were many vendors selling products, as well as a variety of culturally diverse foods. Community groups such as the Rutherford Education Association, Rutherford Pride Alliance, and Healing Hearts of Rutherford were also participants in the festival.
