At Bryan Honda, we like to highlight the many important and exciting events happening right here in our hometown of Fayetteville, North Carolina. Coming up soon is the 39th Annual International Folk Festival, running from Friday, September 22nd to Sunday, September 24th.
Every year now, for 39 years running, the people of Fayetteville have come together to celebrate and recognize our multicultural community with an acclaimed weekend-long festival. We’ve been doing this for nearly four decades, making our little hometown one of the earliest small cities in the country to start honoring and enjoying citizens of all backgrounds and ethnicities.
The 39th Annual International Folk Festival will be the perfect opportunity to learn about a new culture, try delicious foods from around the globe, and delight in international music, art, and dance styles. For those of us who didn’t do as much traveling this past summer as we would have liked, the International Folk Festival is a great way to get a little taste of what we may have missed (and gain inspiration to finally plan one of those big, around-the-world trips).
If you can’t make it to all three days of the Festival, at least come for the Saturday, September 23rd, festivities. The “Parade of Nations” will kick off on Hays Street at 10:30 am, then at Festival Park there will be live music and dancing on multiple stages, food carts, and stands, arts and crafts activities for the kiddos, plus lovely art available for purchase.
Have fun this year at the 39th Annual International Folk Festival—Bryan Honda will see you there!
