Multicultural Events and Meetings

San Diego has a rich multicultural tapestry

The historic murals in Chicano Park and Balboa Park, Malcolm X Library in East San Diego, Martin Luther King Promenade and Chinese Historic District in downtown San Diego are just a few examples of the multicultural tributes evident throughout the county.
