Multicultural Awards Banquet

The 2022 Multicultural Awards Banquet has been canceled this year due to COVID-19. For more information, please contact Community Action Programs at 303-441-3975

The Multicultural Award Banquet (MCAB) celebrates people of color who have made significant contributions in the areas of arts, business, community service, education, health, government, and science & technology.

Community Action Programs organized the first Multicultural Awards Banquet in 1989 to honor people of color who have made major contributions to the arts, business, community service, education, government, health, partners (people from the White/Anglo community who work with people of color to promote social justice around race issues), science, and youth throughout Boulder County. That event marked the first county-wide recognition of the accomplishments of people of color. The banquet sends a positive message to people by introducing them to ethnically diverse people who are making a difference in their community.
