UNLV’s Festival of Communities began in the spring of 2007. The event was created to celebrate and demonstrate the rich cultural diversity of UNLV and the Las Vegas valley. The program has grown from a few dozen booths and 1000 participants to a celebration that now features more than 180 booths and attracts more than 8,000 to the UNLV campus each spring. In 2013, GreenFEST joined the Festival of Communities. These two festivals, with the combined mission to celebrate the rich cultural diversity of UNLV and the Las Vegas Valley and honor National Earth Day, invite community partners, non-profits, organizations, schools, students and families to explore and be inspired. Festivities include green vendors, live entertainment, performances, activities, food and drink from around the world, recycling and conservation exhibits, campus tours, fashion shows, art, mascots, a beer garden and more!
"Our Daughter's Keepers" This year's forum series has focused on issues and concerns impacting the youth of our communities in southern Nevada. According to the Metro, there are many more houses of prostitution operating where women and children are forced into a life of sex in Las Vegas and the region. This is not a victimless crime and our "daughters" are forced to experience unthinkable horrors.
