Join Us to bring the California disability and business communities together to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the ADA and to promote the expansion of a barrier-free and inclusive society.
IMPORTANT EVENT UPDATE!!!
Originally, a parade from UN Plaza was scheduled as part of this celebration but the committee has decided to focus all of the Festival activities within Civic Center Plaza. This important change has enabled us to focus on our growing entertainment line-up, incorporating clowns, face painters, arts & crafts, along with the first ever “soul train” style dance line which everyone is encouraged to “rock-n-roll” through!
