Currently in it’s 61st year, the Columbus International Festival showcases the diversity in cultures that permeate the Columbus, Ohio area.
I walked into the Celeste Center at the Ohio State Fairgrounds to the sounds of Bollywood. The sites showed a diversity in cultures from all over the globe. German and Irish, Arabic nations, Ecuador and Peru, Africa, Japan just to name a few. All represented in culture, cuisine, and craftsmanship.
While not an overly large festival, the main stage certainly gives one a great show. Many cultures have customs, traditions and ways of entertaining. The performances here were great. Not only from a diversity of culture, but also from a diversity in age groups as well.
This year may have wrapped up, but be sure to check them out next year!
