Annual WorldFest Celebrates a Multi-Cultural Louisville

How international is Louisville?

You could count the number of languages spoken within Jefferson County Public Schools (more than 80)  . . .
You could find out at the city’s WorldFest celebration, held each year on Labor Day weekend.

More than 100,000 people flock to the city’s Belvedere Plaza by the river to sample different global cuisines, watch dances and performances, and browse international crafts and wares.

A major highlight is the Friday evening Naturalization Ceremony, when individuals take the oath of U.S. Citizenship. The ceremony can be very moving as hundreds of new Americans beam with pride and accomplishment – their faces tell it all as they take the oath.

On Saturday a highlight is The Parade of Cultures, in which area residents clad in festive native dress present almost every culture in the world.

Four stages offer continuous music performed by local and international talent.

The city’s ethnic restaurants set up booths to offer samples while a professional chef offers demonstrations on “Cooking Up Cultures” to create international fare.

And to top it off, handmade crafts showcasing the styles of Africa, Asia, Europe, and Central and South America are for sale at the many booths set up for the festival.

WorldFest is great way to sample all the great International flare Louisville now possesses through our wonderful and talented multi-cultural community!
