    The Brunswick County Intercultural Festival is committed to celebrating cultural diversity in all its aspects, while honoring the cultural history of Brunswick County itself. This fun, cross cultural education event brings and presents a vast culturally enriching and entertaining experience for people of all ages. Festival-goers will have the opportunity to learn more about the different cultures that live side by side within our county. The festival is packed with numerous performing artists, children’s activities, cultural displays and many more.

    Come join the excitement of the International Village.   In addition to displaying Brunswick County’s heritage, this year the International Village has new, exciting countries, displaying cultural information from the African Continent, South America, Asia, and Europe.  Over twenty countries and cultures will be represented. We will have the very popular activities for all ages “Passport to Culture” mostly geared to introduce kids about cultures from different countries. 

    The Brunswick County Intercultural Festival, Entertainment Stage, showcases some of the best ethnic performers of our region. The Entertainment Stage will take festival-goers through an exciting journey to different cultures with its constant array of artists dressed in authentic traditional costumes who will entertain you with their traditional and contemporary music, dance and visual art forms.  We strive to foster an atmosphere that promotes inclusion; this year’s entertainment promises to be even more diverse. The Barynya Russian Dance Ensemble will be the featured performer one not to be missed.

    Once again, we will have artistic works from our school arts students who will showcase their thoughts on multiculturalism by their entries in the Poster Art Contest. Winners will be acknowledged in Center stage.

    Come and let us share together something to take our minds out of the challenges we have just gone through. Take a” time out”, share our love for each other, get to know our neighbors in this great , loving community of ours. Bring the kids.
