International Festival 2024

Seventh Annual International Festival
Lynchburg City Stadium
Saturday, May 4, 2024
11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

This free, family-friendly event features a unique Parade of Nations, international foods, music, dances, displays, and more. Attendees can “travel around the world” and sample international food, purchase unique artwork and crafts, watch traditional dances, and listen to world music.

In 2023, the festival featured a Chinese dragon-led parade, a variety of vendors, exhibitors, and performers, and a live DJ. This exciting day drew many attendees and we anticipate more excitement and an even larger crowd in 2024.

The festival is free to attend! Bring your kids and enjoy our kids' zone along with plenty of other great activities.

With your help, we can continue to foster cultural awareness and global appreciation right here in our community. You can help us promote the festival by telling your friends about the event, following us on social media, and hanging a poster at your business or organization!
