In light of the most up to date information around Covid-19, the Wilburton PTA has decided to cancel the Festival of Cultures scheduled for this Friday March 6th. It was a difficult decision to make, especially when people have worked so hard preparing for it, but we had unanimous consensus from our Board and our participating countries to prioritize everyone’s health and exercise an abundance of caution in this situation. As things develop, we will be looking at whether this event can be rescheduled to a later date in May.

Come join us for the Festival of Cultures event which celebrates the diverse cultures of Wilburton Elementary School.

Wilburton Wolves speak 35 languages! Bellevue is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in Washington state. We feel so proud and for us it’s very important to celebrate this diversity at our school.

China, India, Japan, Philippines, France, Iran, Mexico, Russia, South Korea...and more will be sharing their culture, food, music and games with the Wilburton community.

Date: CANCELLED TILL MAY

Time: 6:30pm - 8:30pm

Location: Wilburton Elementary Cafe
