Mahoning Valley Historical Society announces the creation of a new event series that celebrates the rich diversity of cultures within the community. Planning is underway for five evenings over the remainder of 2019 and all of 2020 that will honor various ethnic cuisines, traditions, and entertainment. A new advisory group within MVHS, called Mahoning Valley Cultural Alliance, is responsible for organizing these events. This group was formerly named Ohio Cultural Alliance before joining MVHS.
The first event will be held on Monday, October 7, 2019 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Organizacion Civica y Cultural Hispana Americana (OCCHA) Hall at 3660 Shirley Rd., Youngstown, OH. The “Hispanic Culture & Cuisine Night” will offer authentic menu options, mariachi entertainment by Felipe Torres, and remarks provided by Hector Colon. Mr. Colon is a Board Member of OCCHA, a member of Mahoning Valley Cultural Alliance, and Youngstown’s former Fire Chief.
Mahoning Valley Historical Society Members – $25; Non-members – $30
