Louisville’s cultural diversity is being celebrated this weekend at the 9th annual Worldfest. The event, which takes over the Belvedere for 3 days on Labor Day weekend, both educates Louisvillians about the city’s diverse culture and provides visitors with diverse food, shopping, and music.

Worldfest will run from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and will include live musicians, international foods, and information on Louisville’s global connections.

Half of Louisville’s population growth in the past 15 years has been international, and over 90 languages are spoken by JCPS attendees.

This year’s is the largest Worldfest yet, covering 3 days instead of 2, and with more vendors than ever.
