Description

The 2017 International Festival is coming up in Lawton

LAWTON, OK – It’s almost that time of year again! The 2017 International Festival is coming up in Lawton.

The multicultural, family event will take place on September 22, 23 and 24 at Elmer Thomas Park located at Northwest Ferris Avenue and 3rd Street in Lawton. The festival will begin on Friday, September 22, at 5:00 p.m. and run until 10:00 p.m. The event will continue Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and Sunday from 12:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. There is no cost for admission.

The International Festival was established in 1979 to promote greater awareness and appreciation of Lawton’s diverse heritage. Elizabeth Jones is The International Festival Committee’s annual poster design competition winner. Her artwork best represented the festival’s mission. All submissions are on display in the lobby of McMahon Memorial Auditorium until the festival in September.

This year’s event will feature over seventy food, sales and display vendors. There will be plenty to do for the whole family. International Festival Committee’s Children's Area has free games and activities including the crafting of Chinese masks, USA mats, Mexican paper flowers, and Tahitian headdresses. The children’s area will also include hula-hoops, giant bubbles, and the hopping bouncy balls.
