QUINCY, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The City of Quincy becomes a melting pot of culture over the weekend with dance performances and live concerts dazzling residents at Hancock-Adams Common in Quincy Center.
It's all part of the city's two-day Multicultural Folk Festival, where artists are representing different backgrounds with Celtic music from Mari Black Trio, an Indian folk dance from the Classical Indian Bharatanatyam Dance & Jhankar Dance Group, and a performance from Boston Chinese Dance Inc.
Other performances will feature Ezekiel’s Wheels Klezmer Band, the Eastern Sound Polka Band, Americana music from Mark Mandeville & Raianne Richards, Oom-Pah-Pah Oktoberfest Band, and the Gogofski Balkan Ensemble.
City officials say the event will have food trucks parked nearby with cabaret tables for festival seating, though guests are welcome to bring their own blankets or chairs.
Irish tenor singer Ronan Tynan kicks off the festival with his performance at 6 p.m. on Saturday.
“The City of Quincy looks forward to celebrating a wide variety of cultural music and dance— it’s been wonderful to see so many people enjoying our monthly concerts on the Hancock-Adams Common with family and friends," Quincy Mayor Thomas Koch said.
