With goals to Bake, Reconnect, Educate, make Art and celebrate Diversity, the B.R.E.A.D! Festival continues to grow and evolve each year, and not without community input. The community’s enthusiasm for the festival is actually the driving force behind the event’s planning committee.
“We met and assembled a group of community stakeholders,” says Dublin Arts Council Executive Director David Guion. “Our mantra is that we do things with the community, as opposed to for the community, so that was a critical component.”
Though there are many new things to be excited about this year, the essential components to the festival, like the variety of ethnic food trucks and the global marketplace, will return once again.
