As we have since its inception in 1995, this unusual event brings together an extravaganza of performing, visual, and culinary arts and a world of beautiful people offering a remarkable smorgasbord of mouth-watering delicacies, musical talent and dance, creative folk art, language and intercultural learning opportunities, a World Bazaar of exquisite hand-made and imported art and souvenirs, and a world of stories waiting to be shared!
You will find friends from all over the world, foods from Ethiopia, Mexico, India, Thailand, Europe, Puerto Rico, and Central America, talent in music and dance from Aztec, Filipino, Indian, Irish, Chinese, and Kurdish artists, a parade of cultural fashion and dress, and dedicated partners for a better world working for environmental sustainability, green energy, and peace. In addition, to our Fashion Show of International Cultural Dress this year even features an International Breed Dog Show for the animal lovers among us. We believe your hearts will be enlarged and re-energized with the love and hospitality you will find here, in the smiles, and hugs, and beats that set your feet to dancing.
