Save the Date! The annual Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival will return to Centennial Park on Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 10 am – 6 pm.
In a city where one in six residents is foreign-born, the Celebrate Nashville Cultural Festival is not only one of Nashville’s favorite and most vibrant festivals, but also a celebration and reminder of what makes Nashville a great place to live. This FREE Festival provides an opportunity for intercultural dialogue through a Nashville festival experience and features a variety of dance and musical performances on different stages, food vendors offering authentic and exotic tastes from around the world, hands-on children’s activities, an area just for teens, a marketplace, and so much more!
From the traditional cultural dances of Aztec dancers to modern Fusion & Blues, we will showcase music, theater, dance, and performing arts from around the world on 3 different stages.
Filled with booths selling unique hand-crafted and imported items from around the world, the World Market is the place to shop, view demonstrations and enjoy music from the World Market Stage. You’ll also find information about various nonprofits and services that support and benefit our community and the world.
As you stroll through the Global Village, you’ll hear traditional music as the native language of each area is spoken. You’ll see colorful clothing and decorations that are customary for each country. The Global Village offers an authentic look at the customs and traditions of the participating cultures that are present within the City of Nashville and the surrounding counties.
