Indy's International Festival

If you think Indy is monochromatic, you haven't been to the International Festival.

It features exhibits from the 50+ ethnic groups represented in Central Indiana as they gather to share their rich cultural histories and traditions with their neighbors.

Highlights of the festival include authentic foods from 20+ ethnic vendors; continuous ethnic music and dance by local and national performing groups; Culture Booths hosted by volunteers in traditional dress where you can connect with your own ethnic heritage; artisans demonstrating traditional crafts; a Naturalization Ceremony (welcome our newest American citizens) and an International Marketplace offering gifts from around the world.

The festival is the signature event of the Nationalities Council of Indiana, showcasing Indiana’s ethnic diversity, celebrating our unique ethnic traditions, and encouraging cultural exchange.

The next one is November 21 through 23, 2014, in the West Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis.
