We value global awareness, education, and providing children with hands-on experiences to create, explore, connect, and learn about cultural diversity. This unique festival will allow children and families to truly feel the world is within their reach!
I was born and raised in Galveston and in 2017 I moved abroad and experienced first-hand what it was like to live and connect with people from other countries. It opened my eyes to the world around me and I’m hoping this festival will give children and families who attend the opportunity to see the world through someone else’s eyes for a day.
We will have exhibitors and 13 performers from different countries and cultures providing entertainment, education, arts & crafts, and giveaways, sharing information, and inviting us into a daylong adventure all on our very own Galveston Island. There will also be opportunities to try some delicious food from around the world and we will have exciting dance parties
We felt it was very important to have the festival free for all attendees, performers, and exhibitors. We wanted to remove any barriers that could prevent families from attending this fantastic festival. Families from all walks of life will enjoy a trip around the world on the grounds of the Galveston Children’s Museum!
Galveston is a city rich in history, diverse cultures, and experiences. The Galveston Island International Festival will celebrate how this diversity continues to empower us. This day is a dream come true for a girl born on Galveston Island. Save the date, make the trip to Galveston, join us for a festival you don’t want to miss, and stay on our beautiful island for a lovely weekend!
