Transcript Fest Diversity brings Houston together at the city's 30th Annual International Fest The Houston community gathered in downtown Houston for two weeks in April to celebrate its various cultures at the citys 30th Annual International Festival. This years festival spotlighted the Emerald Isle of Ireland. The festival designated seven entertainment zones that were spread out among 20 city blocks. Each zone featured music, food, arts and crafts from various cultures. In the Irish zone, the spirit of the country was brought to life with the beauty and extravagance of Irish Step Dancing, showcasing the World Champion Trinity Irish Dancers. The festival featured an authentic Irish Pub. The Baileys Irish Pub stage presented various Irish jam sessions between regularly scheduled sets. With over 80 performers showcasing differing musical styles, it was virtually impossible to see every performance, so festival goers were forced to choose wisely. But, with so much activity going on, it is doubtful that anyone left disappointed by the festivals entertainment. Acclaimed French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel was on-hand for the festivities the second weekend. Othoniel was giving away his red-beaded necklaces to the first 1,001 people that came to the International Festival. Othoniel was present at the festivities to help announce next year's spotlight- Bv: Ashlv t ed country France. If food is what you are looking for at the Fest, then you definitely went to the right place. An array of international cuisines were present to satisfy hungry festival patrons. Festival food included African, Cajun, Caribbean, Chinese, Continental, Creole, Irish, Italian, Mexican and Southwestern. A beer garden and two wine cafes were located in various zones within the festival. The International Festival began 30 years ago on Main Street 1. Over the years it grew from a small arts celebration that was only two blocks in size into what is now known as the Houston International Festival. The International Festivals main objective is to foster good will relations with other countries in an effort to stimulate international trade. The money generated by the festival goes back to the festival in order to continually bring to Houston quality entertainment and cultural exhibits. UH Senior Consumer Science Major Walter Coreas feels that the International Festival is good for Houstonians. "I think the International Festival is a good chance for Houston to experience various cultures. It was a well put together and organized event!' Houstonians can be certain that next year's festival will be even better. Thousands of Houstonians enjoy the sunshine while watching Irish dancers.
