Join us to celebrate Wayland’s cultural diversity! The World’s Fair is an opportunity for Wayland families and friends to share culture, food and traditions, with booths featuring posters and maps explaining important facts, history and geography, crafts and artwork and a small taste of popular food.  Parent and student volunteers join together to create experiences for World’s Fair visitors to promote community and share cultures.

If you would like to get involved in the 2019 Wayland Elementary Schools’ World’s Fair, we would love your help! 

There are three ways to volunteer:

  1. Culture Booths:  Create a booth with your family and friends or help create a booth with others interested in a similar culture or geography. The World’s Fair Committee provides structure for forming your booth along with the suggestions to help bring your culture to life.  We can fit between 12-15 culture booths at the Loker School.  Cultures we have volunteers for so far include:
  • China
  • Egypt
  • Ghana
  • India
  • Ireland
  • Jerusalem
  • Peru
  • Poland

2. Mini Tasting Stations:  Offer “bites” of a particular food or culture. One year, an American tasting station featured mini chocolate chip cookies and an English tasting station had mini fairy cakes.

3. Logistics:  Help the World’s Fair Committee with organizing efforts like distributing flyers, creating signs for the elementary schools prior to the Fair and helping with ticket sales or during the fair itself.  

If you would like to volunteer or if you have questions, please email us at!
