      Tenth Annual International Festival of North Alabama (iFest 2019)

      Travel around the world—and you DON’T need a passport! How? Join the International Society of Huntsville and UAH as they present the TENTH ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL OF NORTH ALABAMA (iFest)!

      This one-day, family-friendly spectacular―Open to the Public and endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Committee―features a wealth of global performances, from folk dance and traditional instrumentals to ethnic song; food trucks – a festival favorite; FREE hands-on children’s games and crafting; an Open Air Market; and table displays featuring cultural artifacts, travel/historic literature, handicrafts, native apparel, educational videos, and so much more…from around the world!

      iFest takes place on Saturday, 21 September on the grounds of, and inside, the UAH University Fitness Center, and charges NO ADMISSION.

      Several of the school’s organizations assist in cosponsoring the Festival, but the real source of power comes from the volunteers within the Tennessee Valley community, particularly those associated with transnational organizations.

      Nations as diverse as Ghana, Poland, India, Nepal, Ireland, China, Mexico, Pakistan, Ukraine, Colombia, Australia, and Moldova have been represented…and each year is bigger and better than the last! New in 2019 are LATVIA and SWEDEN! Our Spotlight Countries are ROMANIA and SOUTH KOREA!

      For more information, or to participate, contact ongb@uah.edu or (256) 824-6432.

      Bring the kids—and the parents!—and join your friends and neighbors in celebrating the MOSAIC that is NORTH ALABAMA!
