Americana’s Celebration of Diversity and Community.
Join us for our 27th annual festival at Iroquois Amphitheatre, featuring a 5K Run/Walk for the World, a community corner, live local and international music, a kids’ zone, arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, and a health fair!
Get out and run our annual Run the World 5K fun run/walk at dusk to support Americana Community Center! This dusk run will be on Saturday, June 4th, 2016 at 7:30pm during the Americana World Festival. The race is timed and will be on an open course through Iroquois Park.
The Americana World Festival celebrates cultures from around the world – and across the Bluegrass – with live music, local and international cuisine, uncommon goods, crafts and more. The festival kicks off at 1pm and will go until 10pm. Come enjoy the fun before the race and join the German American Club in a post-race gathering in the Biergarten.
Packet pick-up will take place the day of the race beginning at 1pm. Parking is available at Iroquois Park.
Support Americana’s Summer Youth Program
All proceeds support Americana Community Center’s Summer Youth Program, providing fun and engaging activities for 7 weeks during the summer to more than 200 refugee and immigrant youth to prevent summer learning loss. It costs $290 for us to provide programming to one child. Last year, there were over 50 youth on the waiting list. You can help get kids off the waiting list and into the program by registering for the race and sharing with friends and family.
