Summer is the season of food and culture. So far, we've eaten our way from the Russian Food Festival to the Greek Food Festival, and from the Idaho Jewish Cultural Festival's Deli Days to the World Village Festival in Capitol Park.
On Saturday, Aug. 1, the International Food and Culture Festival will debut in Julia Davis Park, featuring a day of food vendors from Afghanistan, Greece, Japan, the United States, Vietnam and more, as well as beer and wine sponsored by Sockeye Brewing.
"Everybody loves food," said festival coordinator Wendy Flores. "It's a great way to share culture."
Enjoy Aztec, Chinese and Vietnamese dancers, live music and cultural entertainment. Kids crafts include a piñata workshop.
