International Festival at the Southfield Pavilion

Get a taste of international culture at the 95th southeast Michigan event, Nov. 18-19, 2017. Be there for food, music and crafts from around the globe.

Step back in time and over country borders to experience a multicultural festival that’s boomed since 1926 and still attracts around 10,000 visitors. The International Festival in Southfield reintroduces Michiganders to a host of cultural customs and ethnicities with rich traditions Nov. 18-19, 2017, by meshing music, cuisine, dance, apparel and indigenous arts for two days packed with inspired fun for the whole family.

Don’t miss cultural exhibits and demonstrations of customs all over the world, and make sure to appease those rumbling tummies with international delicacies available for purchase. Watch in awe as dancers clad in vibrant clothing and familiar with the rhythms from India, Africa, Spain, Bulgaria, Korea, Mexico and many others.

You can also purchase handmade crafts, jewelry, clothing and other gifts from the cultural bazaar and even watch some immigrants officially be sworn in as permanent residents of the country – last year, more than 50 immigrants from 28 countries became citizens at this event!

The festivities run noon-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 18-19, 2017 at the Southfield Pavilion. Admission is $3 per person for a weekend pass or $5 per family with free parking.
