Festival Description

The town of Saint-Ghislain hosts the international festival of folk dances. A multicultural community within the festival has been created over the years by emigrants coming from Italy, Spain, Poland, Turkey, and more recently people of the Arab world. Today, additional cultural dimensions continues to widen the multicultural community—Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, China, India, Malaysia, and also Maoris of New Zealand. Thousands of spectators contribute to the exoticism and discovery. The festival seeks to show that cultures of the world are one in artistic and human qualities through dance.
