The Bowling Green International Festival returns in person for its 31st annual celebration in 2021! 

The Last Saturday in September each year, beautiful Circus Square Park in Bowling Green, Kentucky becomes an International Paradise of nationalities coming together to proudly share their unique cultures. The festival is a traditional celebration that honors the heritage and diversity among our residents through music, dance, demonstrations, authentic foods, edu-tainment activities, cultural displays and an international bazaar.

The event will retain and expand some elements of the virtual Festival including the BGIF Virtual Art Show. Other virtual offerings such as the recipe box and children's activities can be found on the Festival's website where they can be accessed throughout the year for those who cannot attend or who want to start celebrating diversity at home before the event date arrives. 

NOTE: All tickets for this year's festival must be purchased in advance through Eventbrite with link available on the event's website. As of the event's announcement in June, attendance and vendor booths will have capacity limits. Updates to this page will be made as learned.

The festival takes place from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. [rain or shine].
