Diversity and Culture: Kent International Festival

The International Festival is a celebration of culture and diversity in Kent, WA.

November 12th, 2014

Kent prides itself on its diversity.

In addition to the 138 languages spoken throughout the Kent community, our residents come from all races, religions, backgrounds and cultures. In fact, we consider our city a melting pot, bringing together people from all over the world into one place they can call home.

To help us understand, embrace and celebrate our diversity, Kent and a group of dedicated volunteers host the Kent International Festival each year. Featuring art, cuisine, music, dance and other entertainment, thousands of people in and around Kent gather to learn from each other. The free, family-friendly festival was started five years ago by a handful of volunteers, eager to educate others on the different cultures and backgrounds in Kent. Originally held at Town Square Plaza, the festival has grown so big that it was moved to ShoWare Center this year and a larger group of volunteers is now helping to organize the event.

For more information about the Kent International Festival, visit the event site online and mark your calendars for May 30, 2015 for next year’s event!
