International Festival Committee

International Festival

Memorial Spaulding's International Festival will be held Thursday 5/31 from 6:00-8:00!  

The International Festival is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate Memorial Spaulding's amazing diversity. The International Festival provides families with the opportunity to "visit" various countries, learn different languages, make arts and crafts, taste traditional foods from all over the world and be entertained by inspiring performances from across the globe! Most of all, this event teaches us all to celebrate our common humanity.

In order for this event to be a success, we NEED your help! There are MANY ways to get involved whether it's helping with set up, hosting a table, organizing a performance or helping with clean up... Your help will be GREATLY appreciated!

***If you want your country represented, please make sure to sign up for a table or performance as we will only be displaying the flag of a country, culture or region that is participating in this event with either a table OR performance.
