Organizers of the International Festival, the Pearland Foundation for the Performing and Visual Arts, secured the date for this year’s festival, which will feature an emphasis on countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea.
“We wanted to bring a regional feel to this year’s festival,” said Joshua Hari, co-founder of the Pearland Foundation for the Performing and Visual Arts. “The Mediterranean region will provide us with a number of amazing food vendors, cultural performances, and a great deal of diversity associated with that area of the world.”
Two stages will feature music and dance that spans the globe. Strolling entertainers also are featured throughout the festival. The Avenue of Nations features more than 30 exhibits of diverse cultures from around the globe. The International Trade Zone offers unique shopping opportunities. The H-E-B sponsored International Kids Zone offers children’s entertainment and hands-on make-and-take activities for the entire family. The International Boulevard of Food boasts taste-tempting cuisines from all over the world.
“While the emphasis this year is on the Mediterranean, we encourage vendors and exhibitors from all regions of the world to attend,” said Donald Hayes, Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Pearland Foundation for the Performing and Visual Arts. “We estimated last year’s attendance at 15,000 people and hope to greatly exceed that number this year.”
Admission fees vary. Children under the age of 12 are free. Students – with valid ID – are $2. Adult admission is $10. Additionally, there will be a VIP tent this year. Admission to the VIP tent is $40.
