peoplefest.jpgManchester, N.H. has embraced its diversity, and its Peoplefest is a celebration proving so. Traditions established more than a century ago by its original settlers - the French Canadian, Scottish/Irish, Italian, Greek and Lebanese - are joined by a growing number of newcomers from countries like Vietnam, Bosnia, South America and Bhutan at Peoplefest.

Hundreds of vendors and exhibitors will be present to educate visitors of Manchester's services and programs. The World Stage will be a constant moving attraction featuring things like Nepali dancers, Zumba, Spanish singers and cloggers. Peoplefest will be held this Saturday, Aug. 28 at Veterans Park from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is a free festival for people to rediscover the city's history and celebrate the future - literally a festival for all.
