The public is welcomed and encouraged to attend this celebrated event. Free overflow parking and shuttle service will be available from City Hall and the 41A District Court.
Sponsored by the Sterling Heights Ethnic Community Committee, the 2020 Cultural Exchange will feature a wide array of ethnic music and dance, educational and cultural displays from area groups and retailers, and cuisine from city restaurateurs. A minimum suggested donation of $1 is requested. Last year's event drew nearly 1,000 people.
The city is currently seeking support for the event. Businesses interested in becoming a sponsor, restaurateurs who would like to donate samples of ethnic dishes, culturally-related organizations that would like to have a display table, and dance troupes and entertainment groups interested in performing are encouraged to call the city at (586) 446-2473.

"The evening is really a great chance for people of various ethnic and cultural backgrounds to celebrate their similarities more than their differences," said Willie Dechavez, chairperson of the Ethnic Community Committee. "We are looking forward to participation from the many nationalities in Sterling Heights and surrounding areas."
