Mosaic Festival launched in 2010 as a way to engage the Greensboro community in celebrating the diversity and cultures of the Triad. The first year’s event was held in honor of World Refugee Day on June 19th 2010 and drew more than 1000 people to festival park for music, dance, food, and crafts from all over the world.
The event is organized by the Immigration and Refugee Program of Church World Service of Greensboro (CWS) in collaboration with a network of service providers and volunteers including The New Arrivals Institute
