Peabody International Festival and Kids Day
34th Annual International Festival!
Plan to come and enjoy all the diversity the City of Peabody has to offer at the largest exhibition of culture on the North Shore! The Festival will be held on Sunday, September 10, 2017.
Free and open to the public, the festival will run from 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., and will showcase the wonderful diversity of the city through its art and food. Many ethnic foods will be featured among the different booths lining Main Street.
In addition, you can view artwork by different North Shore Artists at the International Festival Galleria. There will also be continuous ethnic entertainment over the course of the day on two stages. Bring the whole family to enjoy the festival and visit the Kid’s Day Celebration at the East End Veteran’s Memorial Park. You will be treated to music, arts & crafts, moon bounces, a magician, dancing demonstrations and much more.
Applications and information regarding the festival are available on the city website: www.peabody-ma.gov.

International Festival In PeabodyDon't miss this opportunity to experience the variety of food and culture available at the International Festival in Peabody. I have gone nearly every year since it has begun and it's always a treat for the entire family. Things not to miss... ANYTHING at the Polish booth (get there early because the lines get really long and they sell out of some items), the rice pudding at the Portuguese Continental Union booth, and the apple pie (I think it is the Brooksby Farm booth). Also, don't forget to watch all the dancers from all different countries. Parking can be tricky, but there are plenty of nearby streets where you can leave your car. Enjoy!!
Wonderful TimeMy family and I attended the festival in 2007 for the first time and we had a wonderful time. Please continue this festival in 2008. Being an out of towner we did find parking a bit confusing. Good Luck with this years event. and we are looking forward to attending. Carol Catalano
