GIVE A HAND FOUNDATION INC has arranged to host the largest World Music and Food Festival ever produced in the South! The FREE Festival will run from October 22-24, 2010 at Piedmont Park in downtown Atlanta, Georgia.
“Good music is a language understood all over the world,” says Edi Okri, president of Give a Hand Foundation. “With this festival, our aim is to bring together diverse cultures and tastes for a fun, rich experience!”
The event will feature more than 100 local, national and international live artists, cultural dancers and comedians for all three days — it will be a time of celebration and cultural extravaganza. The Festival, which will not charge an admission fee to the public, will feature three performing stages. There will also be about 3,000 vendor displays, featuring products and services from around the world!
“The Office of the Mayor, as well as the Department of Parks & Recreation, has approved our use of Piedmont Park for the entire weekend,” says Okri. “The event is completely free, and we’re generating good publicity right now, so we’re preparing to receive a large crowd. We, however, still have some vendor spaces available.”
