March 23, 2023 - The Hampton Mosaic Festival combines elements from the International Children's Festival, Heritage Day, Earth Day celebrations, and adds more art and interactivity. The new, combined festival will be held April 22 from 10 p.m. to 5 p.m. at downtown's Mill Point Park.

The Hampton Mosaic Festival will include traditional music, stories, drumming, and dance of civilizations representing Indigenous People, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. Also featured are more than 20 activities for both kids and adults, including themed games; do-it-yourself art stations; multiple stages of entertainment; Earth Day nature and environmental activities; working artists and demonstrations; cultural displays and demonstrations; heritage crafts; an interactive “Wishing Tree”; and more.  

International food trucks and vendors of traditional customs will sell food and merchandise, and beer and wine will also be available for purchase (must be 21 with ID).  Everyone is encouraged to proudly wear their cultural attire, whatever that may be. 

This event is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the Hampton University Parking Garage next to Mill Point Park, the Settlers Landing Parking Garage, in spaces at City Hall, and in any legal, on-street spaces as marked throughout Downtown.  Handicap-accessible spaces are available in the garages, at City Hall, and on-street as marked.
