International Summerfest and the Black Arts Festival August 11, 2012
The International SummerFest is one of Battle Creek's oldest festivals, and was created by the Battle Creek Area International Relations Committee to promote cultural and ethnic exchange for the enrichment of the Battle Creek community.
The International SummerFest is an excellent opportunity for the community to enjoy wonderful international food and entertainment. It is also a great chance to broaden awareness of other cultures and history that are present in the Battle Creek community.
In recent years the International SummerFest and the Black Arts Festival of the Urban League's Young Professionals have partnered to bring to the community and its visitors an even greater Festival with food, entertainment, children's activities, vendors and art exhibits.
JOIN WITH US AT THE INTERNATIONAL SUMMERFEST AND BLACK ARTS FESTIVAL ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 11, 2012, 11:00 am to 5:00 pm IN McCAMLY PARK TO ENJOY THE FLAVOR OF INTERNATIONAL FOODS, ENTERTAINMENT AND CULTURE.
