Multi-Cultural Festival

Parkersburg City Park
The Mid-Ohio Valley Multi-Cultural Festival (MOVMCF) is a free annual festival which encourages the appreciation and recognition of community diversity through entertainment, cuisine, education, and artistic expression of all cultures. It celebrates diversity with a smorgasbord of artists and performers.

The audience sits in the open air to watch the performers on a covered outdoor main stage. There is also a second stage showcasing up close artist performances and demonstrations. The event features traditional and contemporary music and dance performances of varying artistic, cultural, and ethnic traditions, including Appalachia.

In addition to live performances, the festival features a variety of ethnic food vendors, traditional craft demonstrations, an International Boulevard which provides educational presentations and displays on the variety of cultures, and a special Children’s Activity Center that features arts and crafts, performances, storytelling, and educational programs designed for children.
