More than 20,000 guests celebrate Irvine’s cultural diversity annually and experience the sights, sounds, and tastes of the world representing over 50 cultures. Guests enjoy the mosaic of music and dance on five stages; immerse themselves in cultural and religious displays; indulge in international cuisine; and shop in the world marketplace. This family focused event tantalizes tots with hands-on art projects, games, puppet shows, and activities in a giant, interactive Kids Village. The event was promoted as the #1 activity to attend in OC by OC Register and was highlighted at the Best Festival by OC Weekly. 2011 marked the 10th Anniversary of the Irvine Global Village Festival.
