The Friends of the Arcadia Museum will celebrate the remarkable and colorful array of cultures of the people living and working together in Arcadia on Sept. 14, 2019, from 5-9 p.m., at the Arcadia Community Center, 365 Campus Drive.

Demonstrations of traditional Irish and German dances will be presented by the Gypsy Folk Ensemble while La Sole Flamenco and El Sol de Fuego will perform Spanish and Mexican dances. Those who arrive early (5-6 p.m.) will enjoy demonstrations of traditional arts and crafts including Chinese brush painting, Ukrainian hand egg painting, Japanese tea ceremony, calligraphy and origami and more. In addition, Arcadia High School’s award-winning Chanteurs will be on hand to tie it all together with harmony and song.

A silent auction will provide opportunities to bid on unique experiences like a ride-along with Arcadia Police, a tour of an Arcadia Fire House including dinner with the firemen, lunch with Arcadia’s mayor and much, much more. Dinner, catered by Chef’s Kitchen, includes wine and dessert.

Reservations are required and tickets are $80 per person. All proceeds benefit the Gilb Museum of Arcadia Heritage, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Arcadia’s heritage with the goal of creating a shared identity for a diverse community through exhibits and educational programs that encourage community involvement.

For more information or to purchase tickets, go to or contact Joyce Platt at (626) 574-1303 or by email at
