The 14th annual Kent International Festival will return to the accesso ShoWare Center in Kent after two years of being virtual due to COVID-19.

The free festival is from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 18.

“This event is a celebration of the cultural diversity represented in our city, and it’s a great way to come together, celebrate various heritages and build respect, understanding and a sense of inclusivity in our community,” Kent Mayor Dana Ralph said in her weekly update.

It will feature performers, cultural and informational booths and much more. Organizers are still accepting applications through Friday, May 6 for booths and volunteers.
