The event is only $12, which is well worth the money. Parking was $5, and the lot was well managed and not much of a walk. Our last visit we had an issue getting in the building from the parking lot side, but they had fixed those issues.
There is a wide variety of entertainment. There were several musical acts and dancers, as well as a wide variety of traditional clothing from around the world. Plus, there’s food from all these countries too! We had small meals from several countries over the day, and it was cheap and delicious.
In 2014, I was a little hard on the entertainment of this festival. In retrospect, it was really good. This year, a few of my favorite performances did not return, so that was a bit disappointing.
This is one of our favorite events. We recommend everyone plan to go every year! Click here
