"It's about encouraging people to feel welcome in P.E.I. when they move here. It's about people expressing their culture and getting to share it with others," said festival manager Mark Carr-Rollitt.

The P.E.I. Association for Newcomers to Canada event is celebrated in various locations across the Island.

DiverseCity was in Charlottetown June 25, and will be in Summerside July 30.
