The Marketing Director for festival international says the main goal for this year is unity amongst everyone.

"Even though we're not together in person still being able to come together and celebrate cultural diversity and the arts and music of the world together is our main goal and we're definitely still able to accomplish that"

Something unique to this virtual festival is being able to experience the food the executive director of festival international says all of the participating restaurants will be open for you to order food and watch virtually.

"Go check out the menu each restaurant has come up with there own festival dish and a lot of them are the dishes that they served during the live event so you might be able to go grab your favorite dish eat it at home and enjoy the music"

A total of fifty one performances are lined up for festival along with the opportunity to enjoy food and buy paintings from local artist viator says this experience has taught them a lot.

"We have learned a lot through this virtual transition and some optimistic things that have come out of this we're able to reach a more global audience which is nice and we're going to continue to stream our events once we are back in person"

Festival International has been virtual for two years but you may have a lot to look forward to next year.

"It's just going to look a little different for one more year but you show your support and hang in there with us we'll be back in person next year"
