The ASCV's Festival of Inclusion is a sensory-friendly festival designed to include and accommodate individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities.

The festival will be held on Brown's Island from 11AM – 4 PM and will include music, family activity zones, food and so much more!  The Festival of Inclusion is free and open to the public.
