Each year the festival focuses in on one specific country and culture. This is reflected in the Marketplace. The Marketplace showcases art, crafts, and jewelry from different cultures. Specifically, whichever culture is the featured for the year. Pick up a souvenir handmade by natives and top artisans from around the world.

The Marketplace isn’t just a place to shop. It’s a place to explore, wonder, and learn. Artisans sell their crafts, but some also do presentations on the making of their art. This is a really cool way to learn about different cultures. Kids will love the colorful presentations and seeing products from the start to the finish. At the beginning of the each day, there are workshops for kids that teach them how different crafts are done and even give them a chance to create something themselves.
