Global Fest is a free annual community event benefiting CFI School #70, an Indianapolis Public School. In 2018, we started on our mission to celebrate diversity and promote intercultural understanding through shared traditions, food, music, art and play. We call this mission, Global Fest. Global Fest is our annual event where we invite all of Central Indiana’s community to join in our mission. Last year was our inaugural event and we estimate that over 2,000 people attended! This year, Global Fest is scheduled for Saturday, September 21, 2019. Join us as we share traditions, honor heritage, and learn about cultures through food, music, art, and play.Find out more »
