Uniquely Auburn, a free community-sponsored celebration of cultural diversity recognizing people, places, and events that make Auburn unique, is at 2 p.m. Sunday at the Performing Arts Center.

The 16th annual Uniquely Auburn, “An All-American Story”, will feature performances by Latin Rhythms, a dance group from Green River Community College; Marina Shats, an accomplished composer and pianist; Timmy and Jonny Kosaka, two young harpists; Kate Kosaka, playing the Thai Dulcimer; “unique” stories about Auburn; a special re-enactment of “Casey at the Bat”, and much more.

An art and poetry exhibit in the lobby will feature the works of Auburn School District students and various community artists, with Tastefully Simple providing the hors d’oeuvres. The King County Library System will provide its Digital Discovery Zone bus so young and old can learn more about computer graphics and animation.

Following the program in the theater, there will be a complimentary “sit-down” picnic-style dinner offering chicken, mashed potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, green beans, biscuits and apple pie.

The Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, the City of Auburn, Soroptimist International of Auburn, the Auburn Arts Commission, the Auburn School District and Trillium are sponsoring the event.

The Auburn Performing Arts Center is at 700 E. Main St.
