Now in its 43rd year, our region's longest standing family festival features over 30+ CULTURAL GROUPS represented in our Parade of Nations who unify in sharing the artistic vibrancy of their heritage. 100,000+ ATTENDEES enjoy an array of festivities in the performing arts, live music and dance, international cuisines, cultural arts & crafts, and lots of family-friendly fun and entertainment.
All nationalities join together each year at The Arts Council's International Folk Festival to honor and celebrate our diverse cultural heritage as ONE COMMUNITY. Our love for the ARTS unites everyone from all backgrounds and ages who appreciate the experience of touring native lands, learning about cultural traditions, and embracing our differences to inspire a more inclusive community for all.
