One of the strengths of our community is cultural diversity. Cobb has grown by almost 10 percent in the past decade and is increasingly more diverse. In honor of all the unique influences that make our community thrive, Cobb County will host its inaugural International Festival on Saturday, August 3rd from 10am-4pm at the Jim R. Miller Park Event Center.

Research shows that cultural celebrations foster respect and open-mindedness for other cultures. Understanding people and their backgrounds is vital to personal and community growth. The 2019 Cobb County International Festival will feature a wide variety of local and international music and art, eclectic dancing, delicious culinary options, imaginative crafts, beautiful jewelry, kids’ corner and many other vendors. It will also give local businesses the chance to foster economic growth.

More than 25 countries will be represented at this family-friendly event. Our state-of-the-art event center is located at 2245 Callaway Road in Marietta and can accommodate more than 3,600 people inside the 30,000sf facility. There is also room for 2,500 more people on the plaza, midway and kids’ corner.

Celebrating our differences—as well as our common values—helps unite and educate us. You are invited to be a part of this culinary and cultural experience. Sponsorship and vendor opportunities are also available. For general information, contact  Wendy Collins at (770) 528-8885.
