World of Foodies Fest
Grab the family and come out for a tasty adventure in Historic Downtown Carrollton for the third annual World of Foodies Fest. Enjoy authentic international refreshments, take time for an “Around the World” photo op, hold out a hand for a free henna design, and play some games on the Square.
Bring an appetite and listen to music, celebrate multiple nationalities, and chow down on a world of culture and cuisine. The entertainment starts at 3 p.m. with Polynesian performances, then a Mariachi band at 4:30 p.m., Korean entertainers at 6 p.m., and Kamica King at 8 p.m. with her soulful music and acoustic stylings to complete the evening’s entertainment. Times are subject to change.
The event is free to attend, and food vendors will be selling their culturally-themed specialties at varying prices.
