Multicultural Springfest is a hit with Stanford staffers

L.A. Cicero Fest dancers

Ammy Hill, third from right in the dance line, is a campus readiness specialist in Information Technology Services and co-director of the Alameda Ceili, which performed Thursday, May 22, at the Multicultural Springfest in Frost Amphitheater. The loose-knit group of Irish social dancers meets weekly in Alameda to provide a community venue for Ceili dancing and lessons. (The group’s motto is, “If you can walk, you can do this dance.”) The annual Multicultural Springfest, which celebrates the diversity of Stanford’s non-faculty employees, also featured staff art and photography, live music, dance, spoken-word poetry, raffle prizes and lots of free food.

Organizers estimate that about 5,000 Stanford staff showed up for music and great food at the 14th Annual Multicultural Springfest, staged this year at Frost Amphitheater.
