MOVMCF 2020 Cancelled due to covid-19

 After much contemplation and discussion, we are deeply saddened to announce the Mid-Ohio Valley Multi-Cultural Festival that was scheduled for June 19-21, 2020, is cancelled.

After reviewing the CDC Guidelines and COVID-19 projections of OH and WV, we are confident this is the right and responsible thing to do. Above all, we want to promote the safety and health of everyone involved.

The festival is synonymous with summer in the Mid-Ohio Valley. It has been a constant for 25 years. We know so many look forward to coming together under the trees of the City Park to celebrate life and unity. We hope you will join us next year, June 18-20, 2021.

Until then, let’s look forward to the enticing aroma of international treats, the amazing crafters and vendors, and the constant sounds of celebration coming from the stage. Most of all, let us not take for granted the ability and freedom we will once again have to gather with our community, embrace each other, shake hands and dance shoulder to shoulder.

Where in WV will you find African, Jazz, Scottish, Celtic, Blues and Bluegrass Musicians all sharing the same stage? Where in WV will you find Mexican Dancers, African Drummers, and Bellydancers all performing at the same event?  Where can you eat Polish Kielbasa, French Crepes, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Italian Pizza, Kettle Corn, Philippine ice cream, Fresh Squeezed Lemonade, and an all American hot dog within steps of one another? 

At the MOVMCF at the Parkersburg City Park in Wild Wonderful WV!    

The Festival is free to the public and celebrates diversity with a smorgasbord of artists and performers. Our goal is to highlight a variety of cultural and ethnic groups, showcasing artistic performances of traditional music and dance.
