International Festival

Welcome to the 2022 International Festival 

As part of Independence House’s commitment to social justice and ensuring inclusivity and culturally informed programs and services for all Cape residents, the agency is presenting the 4th annual International Festival as an extension of outreach to the general public and the cultural and underserved communities on Cape Cod.

The International Festival will take place at the Village Green Bandstand in Hyannis (367 Main St.) from 11:00am until 7:00pm on Sunday, July 24, 2022 (rain date July 31).  Admission is FREE to all.

Attendees of the festival will be able to learn and take away information about immigrant-friendly organizations and resources that are available on Cape Cod and also extend over the bridge.  This family-friendly event will also embrace the music, food and art of many cultures. The International Festival’s goal is to ensure that all communities on Cape Cod are recognized and offered opportunities to enhance their livelihoods.
