In 2013, It’s All About the “Essentials of Life”-

This year’s festival, organized by the KID Museum (Kids International Discovery Museum), will focus on the “Essentials of Life” with a fun and educational exploration of the importance and use of water around the world; an expanded Global Kitchen, with local chefs demonstrating traditional dishes from around the globe and hands-on cooking projects for kids; a series of art projects reflecting on the bonds of family, culture and celebrations; and several service projects addressing needs locally and internationally.

The festival also will include immersive exhibits focusing on four countries with some of the largest immigrant populations in Montgomery County: China, El Salvador, Ethiopia, and India.  Each country will be showcased in a large tent with artifacts, photographs and demonstrations of traditional arts.  The day will also feature a wide range of music, dance and cultural performances on two stages, and numerous hands-on activities for children and families and an international craft market presented by Fenton Street Market.
