The fourth annual International Festival is coming to Davis’ Central Park on Sunday, Oct. 5.

This is a free-admission party hosted by International House, Davis, celebrates “unity in diversity” with music, food, song, dance, culture tables, arts and crafts sales and activities for children.

More than 3,000 people are expected to attend the event, which is moving from the Veterans’ Memorial Center to the park.

“As in years past, the stage will be alive with dancers, an international fashion show, drummers and musical groups,” said Elisabeth Sherwin, executive director of I-House.

Already, seven arts and crafts vendors have committed to tabling on Oct. 5 from noon to 5 p.m. They are artwork by Stuart Ratcliff, El Maya crafts from Guatemala, Shelly Hird Designs with Jesus Sosa from Mexico, Washoe Tribal Jewelry, Culture Collection African-American gifts, Kat’s Originals from Hawaii and the Arbuckle Fiber Co. selling knits and yarn.

Several businesses and nonprofits also will be tabling in October, including the American Association of University Women, Pilates for Bodies, Lyon Real Estate, Progressive Business Exchange of Davis, Creative Hair and Spa, Services for International Students and Scholars at UC Davis, Mercy Cancer/Dignity Health, Greystone Apartments and The Alive Network.

International foods and nonalcoholic drinks will be available for purchase. Families will be able to eat lunch at tables or picnic on the grass.

Locals who are interested in participating should contact Sherwin at 530-753-5007 or dir@internationalhousedavis.org. Business and nonprofit tables rent for $150, vendor tables rent for $100 and food vendor tables rent for $300.
