We are now accepting applications for 2016 Global Village Booth presenters! Click here to download the application form. 

The purpose of Global Village is to entertain and initiate interaction and cultural education within the community.The Pedestrian Plaza will be filled with booths representing different countries and cultures. Booth Presenters should offer an interesting display featuring a specific country as well as a craft or activity suitable for young children. 

Booth presenters can be church groups, schools, scout troops or community groups wanting to share information about the country they are originally from, or a country that holds strong interest for them. 

Presenters are responsible for their own displays and materials; however, each booth presenter receives a tent, tables, chairs and use of some general supplies the day of the event.
