To celebrate our 30th Anniversary of the International Festival we are gathering images from our fans!

If you have photos from the first Festival in 1985 please send them to us so we can display them at the event. 

And we'd love to see your travel postcards from around the world!

The International Festival will be here soon! We are all excited about our 30th year and we are planning an amazing festival to celebrate our many years of great memories with you.

We are planning an art contest with Bob Rankin at Marbles museum. We will be sending more information in the next newsletter.

Our theme this year is "30 Years! Generations Shaping our World". This theme is meaningful to all of us and it would be enriching to share a glimpse of your country during those years. Use your creativity and interpretation to represent your country within this definition. If you need any help with ideas, please contact us.

Registration for particpation in the International Festival is now open.


We look forward to yet another amazing festival which brings the world to Raleigh!

Festival VolunteersVolunteers make International Focus' work possible. From year-round planning to Festival operations, each area of the organization operates through the help of dedicated, creative people who donate their time and talents. We have volunteer assignments to fit many interests and schedules.

Join a Committee or Taskforce

Volunteer Committees and Taskforces are essential to the success of International Focus' programs and the International Festival. Work with a team to plan projects and events throughout the year. Joining a Committee or Taskforce is a great way to learn new skills, meet others with the same interests, and connect with the international community. Learn more here.
