History of the Event: In 1998, a group of residents established the City’s first Multicultural Festival to help promote understanding and build harmony within cultures. A second Festival in 2000 sparked interest to expand the Festival to a larger venue, enabling attendance and participation to grow. In 2001 equipped with a new name and location, the Irvine Global Village Festival moved to the Irvine Civic Center where it drew an estimated 4,000 visitors. The dedicated residents who initially started the Festival went on to form the Irvine Multicultural Association, where they continue to actively guide the planning and development of the annual event which continues to grow each year. Most recently, the ninth annual Global Village Festival, held in October 2010, saw an attendance of more than 16,000.
