From date: 
Fri, 04/10/2015 - 11:30pm

We've received dozens of applications for vendors and performers for this year's WorldFest, and while our original deadline was March 27, we've decided to extend it to April 10 to fill in cultures and countries not yet represented! This means you still have a chance!

WorldFest is a multicultural festival celebrating diversity through food, art, music and dance. This annual celebration is put together by the YMCA International Learning Center’s Leadership Team and Social Capital Inc.

This year's celebration will be held on Sunday, May 17th from 1-5pm on the front lawn of the Woburn Public Library (45 Pleasant St.).

If you would like to perform or have a table at this year's festival, then apply TODAY! Applications are due by April 10, 2015. (Attached below). This is a great opportunity for local businesses, new or established, interested in engaging their community through diversity.

We mentioned a while back that SCI and the YMCA Int'l Learning Center are looking for vendors and performers for our WorldFest 2015. This event displays many cultures through food, dance, music, arts and crafts, children's activities and whatever else you can think of, all on our beautiful Woburn Public Library Lawn! The whole world will be in your backyard on May 17, 2015 from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. We're growing a great number of participants, but we've heard that it's a small world after all, so let's make it bigger!

Our deadline for participants is coming up on March 27, so we've expanded on our traditional paper application (attached for your convenience,) by creating an online application and an online payment option (check under "Communities.) This makes it easier for vendors to pay the nominal rental fee for having a table visited by hundreds of WorldFest spectators!

This has been a great opportunity for individuals, businesses, and organizations to share a interesting part of their culture. Whether it's through selling jewelry, creating origami, or entrancing with flamenco, many people have brought world culture to Woburn

Performing at WorldFest is a slightly different story, as we thank our talented acts by offering the in-kind donation of a free table at WorldFest! That's a win for everyone!

If you have a business or organization that doesn't have an immediate connection to a world culture, but is interested in leading a children's activity, please contact Brian at BKibler@socialcapitalinc.org for ideas how how you can be involved in this great festival.
