Mark your calendars for “iFest Live 2012”, International Festival & Vendor Fair scheduled for Saturday, November 3, from 10:00am-2:00pm. Ifest Live 2012, benefiting the Fort Bend Education Foundation, is an event that celebrates the tremendous diversity of cultures in our school district and county by highlighting its many unique traditions, arts, and foods as well as increases awareness for the Foundation and its mission!
The festival will offer a feast for the senses as booths from different countries display their cultural traditions, dress, food and crafts. During this international event, guests will be entertained by talented artists and students from FBISD as well as from a host of regional dance and music schools.
This year the festival will be held at Aliana’s new model home village, which currently contains 12 fashionably furnished model homes – each of which includes a distinctively themed backyard living area. Each of the model homes will represent a different country, and feature free food samples from area restaurants, décor and crafts. Aliana is conveniently located west of Houston, on the Grand Parkway (State Highway 99) at West Airport. Visit www.alianahouston.com.
Any craft or cultural merchant vendors interested in representing their country should contact the Fort Bend Education Foundation at 713.634.1110 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Booths are limited and will be assigned on a first-come basis.
