As its name implies, the Cleveland World Festival (formerly known as the Cleveland One World Festival) celebrates the ethnically diverse music and art that can be found in Cleveland. The third annual event is slated to return to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens on Sunday, August 2. According to a press release, the event's mission is to “celebrate Cleveland’s diverse community with its over 120 different ethnic groups."


The event will "offer visitors a unique opportunity to sample a smorgasbord of the customs, costumes, music, food, and sports reflecting the diverse cultures that make up Cleveland’s heritage.” The one-day event is slated to take place in Rockefeller Park (on MLK Jr. Boulevard between St. Clair and Superior Avenues).
