The International Folkloric Society (IFS) has organized international festivals in Murfreesboro since 1982. The IFS, a non profit organization, is now looking for the opportunity to bring another large scale event directly to Murfreesboro’s downtown area with groups from around the world. In order to provide meals, transportation, and housing accommodations for the international groups, for the week, consisting of approximately 100 persons, we are relying on the generosity of individuals, local businesses, and corporations who are willing to help support international culture, art and heritage.
It is our goal to create a festival that has the potential to become bigger and better each year, resulting in increased tourism and local business patronage. Some of the special events that we plan to include in this festival are:
Evening performance Friday, June 20 for special donors and ticket purchasers featuring all groups
All-Day festival of music and dance on W. Main Street just off of the Murfreesboro town square (including parades, food and craft vendors and more). Streets to be closed to vehicle traffic.
Individual group performances throughout the week at local schools, nursing homes and senior centers.
