Friday, September 24th

Since its inception in 1995, World Fest has established a mandate of increasing cultural awareness and reducing prejudice by bringing international music, food, and people together for a celebration. Although the event is student-focused, all members of the general public are welcome as well – the more the merrier!
Throughout the day the main stage will be alive with a continuous line-up of world entertainment. Artists include local and regional music, dance, and performance acts representing the many cultures of Arkansas from Latin America to Africa.
This year, over 5000 students will participate in World Fest, both by attending on field trips, and by participating in our World Cultural Fair Contest. Students will research and a country’s geography, history, and culture and present their findings in a science fair style display. The projects will be available for viewing by the general public in the morning, so don’t miss this chance to learn a little bit about the world around us.
