The Cleveland World Festival (formerly known as the Cleveland One World Festival) celebrates the ethnically diverse music and art that can be found in Cleveland. The third annual event is slated to return to the Cleveland Cultural Gardens on Sunday, Aug. 2 from 11 a.m . to 9 p.m. According to a press release, the event's mission is to “celebrate Cleveland’s diverse community with its over 120 different ethnic groups." The free event will feature "Same Boat," a roving traveling performance, and the world premiere of Passing Storm, a piece in which performers recreate the sound of a storm. In addition, there will be a Kids Village featuring basketball, futsal and chess. We spoke to founder James Levin this morning from the Hungarian Gardens. He gave us a good overview of the festival.
