Festival of the Nations in Warren

Families are welcome to explore a variety of ethnic food, entertainment and more at this Macomb County series that runs Sundays, May 6-Oct. 28, 2012

If exotic foods and entertainment pique your interest, be sure to visit the Festival of the Nations in Warren – where more than 20 different ethnic and cultural groups will be represented and celebrated. This new event, put on by the Multicultural Council of America, runs in conjunction with the Warren Farmer's Market. It happens at Warren City Square every Sunday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. beginning May 6 and running till Oct. 28, 2012.

Beyond eats and tunes, you'll find information about various cultures, souvenirs, costumes and cultural artifacts. Music and dance – as well other performances – are exhibited each week. The fest is intended to give kids and adults a better understanding and to learn more about the many different cultures that make up the society. Admission is free, as is parking.

Through this festival, the Multicultural Council of America hopes to highlight the "Global Village" that's been created around the world as immigrants have flooded into various countries.

This will be the first year for the Festival of the Nations since the council was established in September of 2001. Its goal is simple: "To help achieve understanding among all people." The council is involved in the promotion of education, health care and world cultures, and has established six-week summer programs for high school students and two-year vocational institutes. The council is a membership-based organization that's open to all.
