The Pigeon Center annually supports a Martin Luther King Jr. pride march, commemorative service, and prayer breakfast; and hosts Black History Month educational programs. A Multicultural Festival in the fall features such activities as races; Latin-, African- and square-dance performances; music; food; a drum circle; and piñata. Then in December, the center’s Season of Light Multicultural Holiday Celebration brings community members together to learn about and enjoy winter traditions, holidays, festivals and foods from around the world.
Fish fry dinners are held throughout the year. Special events include a taco dinner for Cinco de Mayo to a costume dance party for Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead).
In addition to multicultural events for the community, the Pigeon Center hosts community forums and meals, healthy living activities and programs in concert with the Haywood Community College Development Club.
