Soka University will celebrate the 18th Annual International Festival from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm on Saturday, May 4, 2019.  Enjoy 500 musicians and dancers performing on four stages, and over 250 non-profit, craft and business exhibitors.  The 2019 International Festival is a part of the Orange County’s Imagination Celebration, presented in cooperation with Arts Orange County and the Orange County Department of Education.
There will be lots of international food, exhibitors, games and activities, art exhibitions, ceramic sales, a children’s bounce house, games, student displays and much more!
Admission is FREE for everyone!  Parking on campus is $10 cash and we ask that you carpool and have exact cash available for parking fees to speed up the lines — we do not take credit cards in the parking lots.
Don’t forget to bring cash for food and shopping.  About 250 exhibitors will be there to entice you with international food, ethnic clothing, hand-crafted jewelry, handbags, shoes, crafts and information about local businesses and government offices!  There will be a Capstone Federal ATM on the back patio of Founders Hall, but it does charge a user fee.
Have your children pick up a Festival Passport at the Information Center at the corner of University Drive and University Circle.  They can get it stamped at 6 of 11 stamp stations around the festival and turn it in for a small prize when it is completed.
Disabled Parking is available in Parking Lot A and in Parking Structure B, but please come early because it does fill up.  Shuttle vans will run continuously between parking lots from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm to assist you. All stages are accessible, and the Information Center can assist you in finding elevators or restrooms.  They are also marked in the program, along with the First Aid and Lost and Found station at the Information Center at the intersection of University Drive and University Circle.
Please note that the International Festival takes place around Peace Lake at Soka University.  No one is permitted in the water and we ask you to please watch young children very carefully when they are near the lake.
Dogs are permitted but not encouraged due to crowds.  Dogs must be on leash and on pathways and are not permitted in buildings unless they are service dogs.  Three of the four stages are indoors, so bringing a dog will limit your access to entertainment.
