Exciting news! The Faribault Diversity Coalition is organizing the 15th annual International Festival, Saturday October 10th, 10am – 4pm in Central Park in Faribault.
This year we are going to be outside due to Covid-19 restrictions. In case of bad weather we will be placing tents to keep everyone comfortable.
Our festival is a celebration and culmination of our diversity here in Faribault, including entertainment, arts & crafts, henna, flag ceremony, kids’ activities, music, non-profit and service groups, tournaments, and, debatably the most noteworthy, food from around the world!We are in planning stages so details will be following, but we are already getting the word out to our diverse groups and nationalities to plan setup a food, drink or cultural booth.
And… this year all booths will be free of charge (the money you make selling your food etc. is yours to keep).
Please stay tuned for more information!
