Mark your calendars! On Sunday, August 18, 2019, from 1:00 pm - 7:00 pm, the Wheeling Park District will be hosting the 2019 International Festival!
The main purpose of this event is to celebrate and embrace the diversity of our communities. This event is the perfect place to take the whole family and learn as you enjoy the richness that exist in our community. The performers, vendors and organizations we collaborate with want you to leave with a memorable experience of what it means to be a citizen of the world. Do not miss this great event!
A look at last year…
In 2018, we have had over 25 ethnic and cultural performances and demonstrations representing regions from all over the world such as India, Mexico, Ireland, Brazil, Colombia, Spain, the Middle East, West Indies, Russia and many more!
Additionally, we had over 20 community organizations on site providing art and craft activities for our little ones and adults alike. Attendees created a maraca, Chinese lantern or had henna done... there was something for everyone. Attendees also tasted different flavors from around the world by purchasing a dish from one of the vendors on site!
Want to participate as a performer, vendor, business or organization?
This event is not possible without the support of the many performers, demonstrations, businesses and community organizations.
