It’s summertime again and you know what that means! The kids may not be bored yet but they soon will be, and World Folkfest is on its way! This year, groups from Armenia, Belarus, Bolivia, China, Hungary, Peru, Slovakia, Switzerland and Tanzania, as well as local groups Rocky Mountain Express and Morning Star, have been invited to perform at the Spring Acres Arts Park (620 S 1350 E, Springville – behind SHS) between 31 July and 4 August. The week kicks off with the free street dance at the Springville Museum of Art on Monday evening, 30 July, at 8 and concludes on Saturday evening with a spectacular closing number. The gates open at 6 p.m. with preshows at 6:45 and the main performances beginning at 7:30, Tuesday through Saturday. Food and craft vendors will be available. Please visit our website or our Facebook page for more information.

Do your kids participate in the Chinese immersion program at school? Do you want to brush up on the Spanish you learned on your mission? Is your prospective missionary a little shy about talking to people whose first language isn’t English? Maybe you’d like to break out of the summer menu routine and try something exotic. Did your ancestors come from Switzerland? Did you love the group from Belarus who came last year (same country, different group this year)? Did you host some of the kids from Bolivia when they were here a couple of years ago? They’re coming back! Have you always wanted to visit Hungary or Slovakia but didn’t know anyone there? Does your employment have connections with Peru or Tanzania? If you are interested in expanding your international experience and would like to host 2-4 of our guests for the week, please contact Elissa Johnson at folkfesthostfamilies@gmail.com. You will have a memorable experience and gain new friends.

Whether you participate for one night or for the week, we look forward to seeing you!
