Lansdale festival on the way

April 13, 2018 by  

For the 27th year, Lansdale is getting ready to celebrate its International Spring Festival, a community gala that is Pennsylvania’s largest event celebrating cultural diversity, according to an article on the festival’s website.

Each year in April, North Penn High School is the site of the festival, which includes vendors, a smorgasbord of foods from all over the world, multicultural exhibits, loads of activities for children, a family-oriented Health Fair, and entertainment.

Tasting food from other countries is always a high point at such celebrations, and Lansdale is no exception. Among the goodies visitors can sample are Afghan cooking provided by the Crown Chicken & Grill, and coffee from Philly Espresso Etc. German cuisine comes courtesy of The Red Cedar Grille, and always-popular Indian food will be served by Aman’s Authentic Indian Cuisine. Other ethnic specialties represented include Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lebanese, Mexican, Persian, and Turkish; tea will be courtesy of the Tea Cafe International.

The festival is organized and run by volunteers, who expect as many as 6,000 people to attend. Festival-goers are encouraged to dress “festivally” for the event.

This year’s festival will take place from 11:00 am until 5:00 pm on April 21 at North Penn High School. Park and admission to the festival are both free.

Events like this can be even more fun if organizers work with a banner printing company to create colorful banners to decorate the venue.
