In 2019 the International Relations Commission brought the world to Holland, MI. The First International Festival of Holland attracted more than 2,500 people of all ages. Seventy-five performers shared the music and dance of their culture from traditional tribal dance to Japanese drumming to Cuban jazz. A Festival Mercado (or International Market) offered an amazing assortment of goods from around the world and unique culinary experiences. At the Children’s Fiesta kids received their own Festival passport and created traditional art from across the globe.
Mark your calendars for Saturday, August 21, 2021 for this year's International Festival of Holland. Live events will be held at the Holland Civic Center Place. Performers are being confirmed. Vendors are signing up. Sponsorship opportunities are now available. As our community gains victory over the virus and we gain freedom from isolation, we come together to celebrate our diverse cultural experiences that help us grow with and connect to the wider world.
