[ARCHIVED] Celebration of Diversity Festival to Take Place Monday, March 5

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The City of East Lansing is proud to support the Celebration of Diversity Festival, taking place on Monday, March 5 from 4-7 p.m. at All Saints Episcopal Church, 800 Abbot Road.

The event will offer a safe, inclusive environment with quiet spaces and off-site areas available for any who need it.
