The City of Irvine’s Global Village Festival is my favorite Irvine cultural event of the year!
I am particularly excited for this year’s Festival, because it will be the first to be held at the Orange County Great Park!
The Global Village Festival is now taking applications for sponsors for its 2018 event, which is Saturday, Sept. 22.
A variety of sponsorship opportunities are available for the 2018 Irvine Global Village Festival.
The all-day event features more than 100 performances representing cultures from around the world; international cuisine; kids’ crafts and activities; cultural and religious exhibits; and an international marketplace.
Founded in 1998 by a group of Irvine residents to help promote understanding and build harmony within Irvine’s many diverse cultures, the Global Village Festival is now Irvine’s signature event, featuring more than 100 performances representing the cultures of dozens of countries; international cuisine and food from more than 50 restaurants; an international marketplace filled with unique crafts and textiles; interactive, educational and entertaining cultural displays, demonstrations, and performances; and an international village just for kids.
Festival admission is free.
The Global Village Festival is one of Orange County’s fastest-growing multicultural events. With more than 25,000 people in attendance, the Festival’s highly diverse audience makes it an ideal partner for businesses and organizations looking for increased visibility.
Applications for entertainment are also now open.
Applications for vendors, restaurants and exhibitors – including nonpolitical, nonprofit and governmental organizations looking to support the festival as a community partner – will open in late April.
