Toledo Sister Cities - International Festival

Preparations are underway for our 2023 International Festival. This will be our 12th annual festival. Performing groups (vocal, instrumental & dance) represent not only the 12 countries of our sister cities (Brazil, Spain, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Italy, Tanzania, Lebanon, Pakistan, India, China & Japan) but also many of the other ethnic communities of the Toledo area. We also offer a variety of food from at least 4 different countries. These countries vary from year to year so all groups have the opportunity to be represented. We offer a Language Corner where every half hour, a little bit of a different language is taught.
