WHT was proud to sponsor Lexington’s inaugural DiverCity Festival on April 27, 2019 at the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza. WHT attorney Michael Kunjoo was a co-founder for the event, and was elected as the Project Manager. The DiverCity Festival was created to educate, embrace, and celebrate the multitude of cultures that enrich the city of Lexington.
The festival kicked off with an Opening Ceremony, which included a Proclamation from Mayor Linda Gorton. April 27, 2019 was declared to be DiverCity Festival Day in Lexington, KY. The festival proceeded with 43 multicultural performances on two separate stages. The festival also had over 70 booths with various local vendors and organizations. Total attendance for the event exceeded 3,000. Due to the overwhelming support for the festival, DiverCity Lexington team is working to ensure that this becomes an annual event.
