International Festival brings the world to Indianapolis

The Indianapolis International Festival is always an exotic treat, and this year is no exception.

From November 19 through 22, Indy will be treated to performances from around the world,  ranging from South African dancers to Indian drummers. There will also be an extensive menu of food and crafts from dozens of artisans, representing a broad swath of world cultures.

Although the International Festival is designed first and foremost as a fun event, perhaps the climax of the weekend's events at the Indiana State Fairgrounds West Pavilion will be a solemn naturalization ceremony for new U.S. citizens at 3 p.m. on on Friday, November 20.

So bring your dancing shoes - and your appetite - ready for an exciting weekend of cultural immersion in Indianapolis.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $9 at the door. For more information, visit the Indianapolis International Festival official website.

Indiana State Fairgrounds West Pavilion
