World Village Fest

Cecil Andrus Park, Friday-Sunday, June 8-10


Boise is becoming a more multicultural city by the day. One local institution embracing the changing demographic is Global Lounge, the culture-building nonprofit that puts on World Village Fest—an annual, three-day event dedicated to putting Boise's many international groups in the spotlight. This year's edition of WVF will host representatives from the Mexican, Basque, Native American, Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Bosnian, African, North and South America, Middle Eastern, Indian and Greek communities, and members will share dances, food and more from their home countries. There's no better way to get to know Idaho—and it happens just off the statehouse lawn.
