NOTE: The 2021 festival will have limited offerings, both in order to keep our patrons safe and to adjust to budget constraints resulting from the pandemic. This year’s festival will not include principal events such as the World Arts Expo at Riverfront Park and the Children’s Festival in Park Circle and featured artists are more locally based. Virtual programs will be offered in 2021 and all in-person events require COVID-19 safety precautions (face coverings, social distancing, hand sanitizing stations, etc.).
