Irvine to go global

September 3, 2012 by  

The annual Global Village Festival is set to take place at the end of the month. Now in its 11th year, it is one of California’s most popular festivals. It features a multicultural environment with international cuisine, crafts, activities, live entertainment, a kids’ village, and a diverse marketplace.

A pre-event called ‘Walk for Unity’ will be hosted by Humanity Unites, beginning at 9:00 am on the day. It will include a 5K walk beginning at the corner of Harvard and San Juan Streets.

The festival will host the Sweet Stop, offering visitors a chance to indulge in a stroll down candy lane while participants are encouraged to come with a sweet tooth.

The Festival’s Global Marketplace features local, regional, and international exhibits offering crafts, arts, unique presentations, and tasty food samplings.

Adding to the fun activities of the day, there will be many stage demonstrations performed throughout the event including martial arts, musical and dance displays, and arts and crafts.

Local printing companies are often involved in assisting organizers and performers in preparing for large events like this festival. Banner printing is a common order as banners are highly visible and can be placed strategically throughout an event to direct attention to the areas. Flyer printing is generally done in advance of an event for distribution to advertise the festival and draw attendance. Vendors and performers often use business card printing services to have cards available to generate future business.

The festival is scheduled for September 29 in Irvine from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm at Bill Barber Park Admission is free and vendor applications are available online. For more information on the Irvine Global Village Festival, visit the website.
