An in-person version of the 14th annual Kent International Festival will be returning to the accesso ShoWare Center on Saturday, June 18, 2022.

This will be the first in-person version of this great local event since 2019.

Hours will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

“We are so excited to hold our festival in person again this year,” organizers said.

The Kent International Festival is a celebration of the cultural diversity represented in the greater Kent community.

“We believe that, through coming together and celebrating our various heritages with respect and understanding, we build a stronger and wider sense of community that is inclusive of all,” organizers said.

Applications are now open for 2022, with a deadline of May 6. Volunteer Applications will continue to be taken after May 6. 2022.
