International Festival-April 18, 2015
The sixth annual Toledo Sister Cities International Festival will be held on Saturday, April 18th, 2015 in the Student Union at the University of Toledo. A full range of cultures and performances will be featured from 12 noon until 8:00 pm. A Parade of Nations will open the event at 12:10 pm.
The afternoon and early evening event features ethnic food, dancing, music and other performances by participants celebrating cultures from around the world. Toledo is privileged to have sister cities in Spain, China, Hungary, Poland, Japan, Tanzania, Germany, Lebanon, Pakistan, India and Egypt, and additional sister cities are in the works. The festival also features local community groups. Last year, 23 groups performed and visitors enjoyed international fare from six area restaurants. Our performers and ethnic restaurants are being selected for this year. World beers will be available, and vendors will be on hand to offer crafts and other goods. Last year, the festival had some 2,000 participants in this celebration of international diversity!
