multicultural festival

WorldFest Application Extended

Korean Fan Dancers

WorldFest is a multicultural celebration that takes place each spring on the Woburn Public Library Lawn. This year WorldFest will take place on Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 2-5 pm. This event is put together by SCI and the YMCA International Learning Center. We are currently seeking performers and participants to share their culture with the community, through art, music, dance, and food.

Another Successful WorldFest Celebration

WorldFest 2013 was a smashing success! Over 700 people showed up to the Woburn Public Library for this multicultural festival celebrating cultural diversity in the community.

Guests were entertained by a string of talented performers including a bag piper from the Bunker Hill Pipe Band, Eastern Star Children’s Choir, the Merry Minstrels, Cuban musician Coco Torres, Japanese Drummers from Odaiko New England, Brazilian Dancers, Ku’s Taekwondo Academy, Fan Dancers from the Korean School of New England, the Woburn Memorial High School A Cappella Singers, and a Middle Eastern belly dance by Nadia Sophia.

The kids were entertained by a wide assortment of children's activities including bubble blowing, martial arts with Rising Storm Training Academy, a pinata, International yard games with the North Suburban YMCA, Polynesian poi with Nadia Sophia, and a mini soccer clinic led by professional soccer players from Brazil.

WorldFest 2013!

Tour the world in your own backyard!  WorldFest is returning to Downtown Woburn on Sunday, May 19, 2013 from 2-5 PM. Visitors can enjoy artwork, crafts, activities, cultural displays, and of course food from around the world. Entertaining the crowd this year will be Eastern Star Children’s Choir, the Bunker Hill Bag Pipe Band, the Merry Minstrels, Cuban musician Coco Torres, Japanese Drummers from Odaiko New England, Brazilian Dancers, Ku’s Taekwondo Academy, Fan Dancers from the Korean School of New England, the Woburn Memorial High School A Cappella Singers, and Nadia Sophia with Middle Eastern Belly Dancing.

Children’s activities and performances will delight the little ones. Kids of all ages can try their luck at a piñata, learn Polynesian poi, practice their martial arts skills with Rising Storm Training Academy, take a soccer clinic, and learn origami while getting passport stamps that will earn them a free treat from Hot Breads of Woburn. Bring your family and enjoy an afternoon of culture!

Students have been busily asking their friends, neighbors, and favorite local businesses to participate by having a table showcasing an aspect of their country, offering hands-on activities, or performing on the stage.
