Each July, the Festival transforms the idyllic lakefront Dawes Park, Sheridan Rd. at Church St., into a global village. Surrounded by the flags of more than 100 nations honoring the diversity of our planet, attendees experience the colors, sounds, and aromas of world cultures. Every continent is represented in song, dance, spoken word, visual arts and food.
There is live music, dance performances and art and craft work of juried artists. People can also learn the folkdance of a far-away country and explore the intriguing spices and seasonings of new ethnic foods.
