Each year the World Folkfest presents performances of selected ethnic folk dance groups, creating a glorious and unique yearly performing cast, consisting of hundreds who speak the universal language of music and dance, truly creating; One World on One Stage.
Since our founding in 1986, the World Folkfest has achieved a feat that many thought impossible by welcoming performers from over 45 different countries. In spite of the countless global and political changes, for 35 years the World Folkfest has continued on its steady course, providing a stage where politics, religion, and languages fade and all that is left is the heart and soul of the dancers who come from all corners of the world to perform and share their love for culture and the unwritten histories, traditions, and heritage passed down from generation to generation.
Aside from the performers, thousands of spectators attend the World Folkfest each year, making this festival a tradition, not to be missed. "There is a spirit of love here." One audience member remarked. "This festival makes you believe that world peace truly is possible." Another attendee wrote. Traveling far and wide people have enjoyed coming together in unity of the human spirit and the remarkable ability to put aside all differences and celebrate the love we share for diversity and friendship. Every year, word spreads and the festival does too. We are excited to see what's in store for the years to come and are excited for our performance this year in 2021!
