Event Details:

The Toledo Sister Cities International Festival holds the distinction of being the first festival of the season in Northwest Ohio. Participating countries include Spain, China, Hungary, Poland, Japan, Tanzania, Germany, Lebanon, Pakistan and India.

Between now and the International Festival, organizers will be looking for corporate sponsors and volunteers for the event which attracts over 2,000 people each year.

There will also be authentic ethnic food available from several participating countries, as well as world beers. Other vendors will be on hand to offer crafts and other goods. Merchandise representing many other countries will be available. All Sister City clubs and committees and other local organizations with an international interest will have information and activities. There will also be an opportunity to learn a bit of a different language every half-hour.

The upcoming festival will include recognizing the Toyohashi, Japan Committee and their 20th anniversary as part of Toledo Sister Cities International. TSCI will also begin promoting for 2021 the 90th Anniversary of the signing between Toledo, Ohio and Toledo, Spain which is believed to be the very first “sister city” relationship anywhere.”

Admission for the International Festival is $5 in advance or $8 at the door the day of event. Seniors and students with ID's are $6. Children 10 & under are free.
