The festival has grown to the point that last year it attracted an estimated 50,000 people (that is almost as many people as go to a Titans game) to Centennial Park for a day-long smorgasbord of food, music, dance, crafts and other arts and cultural experiences from all over the world.
Fifty cultures are expected to be represented in all sorts of ways, including four stages with performers such as Global Culture Nasu Japanese Dance Group coming in from Japan; Ernesto Chavana, coming from Mexico to the Xfinity Stage; and Melinda Doolittle singing on the Musician's Corner Stage.
