in Community/Featured/Headline and

The San Mateo County Commission on Disabilities invites ALL county residents to its first-ever Annual Inclusion Festival – Thursday, August 2nd, 11 am to 3pm, in Burton Park, San Carlos.

On the agenda?  Accessible bocce ball, a visit from the county library’s Lookmobile (think the Exploratorium on wheels), a performance by the AXIS Dance Company, live music – and the chance for the audience to take the mic and the stage as well.  And if you get there on the early side, they’ll be dishing up food as well.

The Commission on Disabilities explains what it’s all about:  “The Inclusion Festival is an opportunity for people of all ages to celebrate San Mateo being an inclusive and accessible community.  It is about removing all barriers that uphold exclusion which impede progress toward openness and acceptance of our differences.”

All county residents are welcome to join the celebration.  Find out what’s happening in San Mateo County for people with disabilities, learn how you can help or take advantage of what’s already on offer – and have some fun too.
