Human Relations - August 31, 2017
Cultures from all over the world will be showcased and celebrated through music, dancing, fashion shows, food, arts and crafts vendors, and information booths at this year’s International Village Food and Music Festival, being held from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 9, in Corpening Plaza. Admission is free.
The festival will be preceded by a Naturalization Ceremony at 11 a.m. in Corpening Plaza.
Human Relations started International Village in 2011 as a section of the Rock the Block downtown street festival. When the city phased out Rock the Block, the Human Relations Commission continued to hold International Village as a stand-alone event. This year, the commission modified the name to better communicate the nature of the festival.
