World Festival 2019

Welcome to our World Festival 2019 information page!

The 2019 World Festival, the 44th annual running of the event, will take place at Mayo High School,  1420 11th St SE, Rochester, MN 55904, on Saturday April 20th 2019 from 10 am to 3 pm.

All events will take place in the foyer, gymnasium and cafeteria areas of the school. We hope to have a number of new attractions this year, as well as familiar favorites such as our cultural displays, performances, marketplace and, of course, food!!

General admission to  World Festival is FREE! Food tickets will once again be priced at $0.50 and sample plates will be available from our food vendors with a ticket value.

Our Marketplace vendors will be selling goods with ethnic origins and influence, so make sure you stop buy to make some purchases too!!

All our cultural and organization display booths, performances and children’s activities will take place in the school gymnasium and we expect a full and busy performance schedule.

We hope to have our World Festival 2019 poster soon, so check back for that later!
