A Parade of Nations will open the event at 10:00 am. Parking is free. See the map for locations.

The International Festival is a Toledo celebration of cultures from around the world. We have Sister Cities in Spain, China, Hungary, Poland, Japan, Tanzania, Germany, Lebanon, Pakistan and India. Other local groups are also represented, and vendors will sell crafts from around the world.

Last year, over 20 local groups played, sang and danced and over 3,000 visitors came to enjoy their talent.
