Travel the world in just six hours without leaving Davis by coming to the International Festival.

This third annual event takes place Saturday, Oct. 12, from noon to 6 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Center, 203 E. 14th St. in Davis. The festival is free and a huge variety of events take place, from singing and dancing on the main stage to arts and crafts sales, from international food sales to games for children.

Admission is free.

For more than 30 years, International House, Davis, has promoted respect and appreciation for people of all ages, cultures and ethnicities by providing activities and opportunities for cross-cultural interaction.

“International House, Davis, is committed to educating the community, welcoming international visitors and celebrating our differences,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director. “Last year several thousand people joined us in celebrating ‘unity in diversity’ at our International Festival.”

Whether you’re a college student, a parent with children or someone who just wants to learn more about other cultures, you’re invited to attend the festival with your friends and families and meet people from all over the world.

Entertainment will include Galena Street East Productions, Dixon Scots and the Aztec Dance Group plus myriad musicians and guests.
