The 2nd Annual "A Taste of Unity - Tasting the Nations" will showcase multicultural exhibits, music and dancing performances and more. This Heritage-Unity event invites ALL ethnicities and heritages to come hear their stories, how long they have been in the community, and what they’re doing for their community. Come vote for your favorite vendor. School book bags filled with school supplies given away each hour.


Multicultural collaboration helps make the fabric of our Mississippi Gulf Coast community. That is exactly what the Healing Table Unites is doing!
