The Holiday Folk Fair is an annual five-day festival celebrating cultures from around the world. Thousands of visitors attend the Fair each year.

A visitor can find egg rolls, strudel, scones, falafel, pizzelle, and sushi all under one roof. The main entertainment takes place on two floors, the All Nations Theater and the Music Pavilion.
