A collaboration between the Virginia Folklife Program of Virginia Humanities and the Library of Virginia, this event lets you explore the sights and sounds of the new-old traditions of migrants who have come to Virginia over the last three decades. Among them: the colorful Guatemalan alfombra (sawdust carpet) and dance, Hindustani raga singing, a Bolivian tinku dance group and a Mexican mariachi band. The event is one of the first public programs supporting the library’s upcoming exhibition, “New Virginians: 1619-2019 and Beyond,” which opens in December. Free with free parking under the building. 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. For information, contact catherine.wyatt@lva.virginia.gov.
