A New Way to Celebrate

The City of Irvine commemorated the 2020 Irvine Global Village Festival event over three weeks with a series of socially distanced events and online experiences for all. From September 21 to October 10, the community celebrated the spirit of the festival and made new memories while honoring our multicultural community during these unusual times. The celebration included two drive-in concerts at the Orange County Great Park, with performances put on in partnership with the Irvine Barclay Theatre. The festival celebration also highlighted Irvine’s diverse restaurants, encouraging the community to experience the global fare available in Irvine restaurants while celebrating at home.

While we couldn't gather in person this year, the City enjoyed celebrating Orange County’s premier multicultural event in innovative ways that kept the public safe, connected, and engaged. As we all navigate through these unprecedented times, the City appreciates the community's ongoing support and partnership. We look forward to coming back together stronger and united for the 2021 festival.
