DeKalb International Food and Music Festival
DeKalb International Food and Music Festival. Coordinated by Commissioner Stan Watson, the food and music festival will feature multi-cultural cuisine and entertainment from across the world, and represent cultural groups from more than 32 countries.
"We are excited to bring back the DeKalb International Food and Music Festival and I am confident this year's festival will unite the dynamic blend of cultures and traditions that continue to exist in our county," said Commissioner Watson.
The festival is also presented by CEO Burrell Ellis and former DeKalb CEO and State Senator Liane Levetan, in partnership with the DeKalb Chamber of Commerce, the DeKalb Convention & Visitors Bureau, and representatives from the Asian, West Indian, Middle Eastern, Hispanic, and African communities.
"As Georgia's most diverse county, we are proud to embrace DeKalb's vibrant population, traditions and cultures, and we look forward to showcasing the talents of the international communities that call DeKalb home," said CEO Ellis.
The festival will include cultural, educational and entertainment activities for residents of all ages, including a host of interactive vendor displays; samples of delicious cuisine from across the world; and retail vendors highlighting their respective country's markets. In addition, agencies with an objective to serve the interests of the international community are also encouraged to attend.
Last year, through the help of sponsors and event proceeds, the DeKalb County Police Alliance received a sizeable donation of $10,000 and the Police Athletic League received $2,500 donation. Confirmed sponsors for this year's festival include Integral Group LLC and Synch-Solutions.
