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.

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.

For more information, contact Clare at (502)366-7813 or clare@americanacc.org.
