Hodges University announces Seventh Annual Diversity Festival

Hodges University News

The 2014 Hodges University Diversity Festival returns to Sugden Regional Park in Naples on March 1 from 12 pm to 6 pm. The festival brings together a broad array of vendors, entertainers and local artisans representing the cultural diversity of the Naples and Ft. Myers communities.  

The event will feature local musicians, singers and dance performers from our diverse community, arts and crafts exhibits, a kid’s area, as well as a Fine Art gallery and several multi-cultural heritage exhibits.

Local restaurants will provide a vast array of multi-cultural food samples for a small fee, and for the seventh consecutive year, the “Parade of Nations” will be the event’s highlight, displaying clothing and fashions from around the world while providing historical information regarding the clothes worn in different countries. 

Sugden Regional Park offers many amenities for guests to enjoy during the festival, including a beach open to swimming, an open play area, a sand volleyball court, a 60-mile lake with two fishing piers, paddleboats, kayaks and more. Sugden Regional Park is located at 4284 Avalon Dr., Naples.
