Welcome to International Spring Festival Website

The mission of the Lansdale Public Library is to enrich our community through the encouragement of early literacy, the fostering of life-long learning and the celebration of the cultural diversity in our area. 
A big way we’ve been celebrating diversity is with International Spring Festival. The International Club of the Lansdale Library is presenting the 20th Annual International Spring Festival on April 16, 2010 at North Penn High School from 11am to 5pm.

The festival features an international food court, cultural performances on two stages, over one hundred display tables including thirty nationality exhibits, a health fair, and children’s rides.

 

Also, since education is the key to promoting diversity, there are many learning activities for children, including tasting food, trying on ethnic costumes, and playing with musical instruments from various cultures. Kids also create ethnic art and win prizes for completing the Passport Program, through which they learn facts about many countries.

The festival planning committee, a diverse group of over 30 individuals, is coordinated by Tom Meyer, director of the library, along with Dr. Francis Jeyaraj, a local pediatrician and one of the founders of the International Club. The festival wouldn’t be possible without the contributions of our partners, sponsors, supporters and volunteers. The partners who collaborate with the library to put on the festival include North Penn School District, The Reporter, North Penn United Way, Montgomery County Community College, North Montco Technical Career Center, NPCN, Peace Project of Montgomery County, PennSuburban Chamber of Commerce, and WNPV. Sponsors providing financial support to the festival last year were Merck, Montgomery County Commissioners, North Penn United Way, Hatfield Quality Meats, Abington Health Lansdale Hospital, Mercy Suburban Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Harleysville Insurance, Harleysville National Bank, Univest , Bank of America, and Wyeth.

Again, the key to promoting diversity is education. Hate is bred by fear and fear comes from lack of knowledge. The goal of the International Spring Festival is to celebrate the diversity of the area in a fun way while sharing knowledge through art, music, food, and educational activities. The intent of the festival is to promote peace and acceptance in our community.

If you’d like to be a part of the International Spring Festival, we are always looking for volunteers to help with the planning phase and volunteers to setup the day before and participate the day of the festival. We appreciate the continued support of our sponsors and are always looking for new sponsors. We could use assistance promoting the festival and advertisers for our supplement in The Reporter.
