I couldn't agree more with your observation about the lack of food and culture at Rochesterfest! I really hope that you take your observation beyond your blog, as I think that it could bring some much needed cultural diversity to an event that seems to be dominated in typical Midwestern fair food! However, I wonder if the majority of Rochestarians (is that what we're called?) wouldn't rather have a booth from Chili's or Applebees present (as observed by the bland choices listed in this year's "Best of Rochester" issue of Rochester magazine). What an ethnocentric city we live in!

RNRC is actively seeking immigrant/newcomer representation on our Board!

Board member positions are a 3-year term and the time commitment is 6-10 hours per month. (If that sounds like too great a commitment, please consider sharing your talents by serving on a committee for a year!)

If you, or somebody you know, is interested in working with a great group of enthusiastic, caring people who are "Helping Neighbors Build Community," please contact me to learn more. Phone 529-4150 or email rnrc@rneighbors.org.

P.S. While RNRC doesn't have anything to do with organizing RochesterFest, I agree it would be fabulous to have a selection of authentic international dishes!
