Passport Europe Festival
September 24, 2016 @ 10:00 am - September 25, 2016 @ 4:00 pm| Free
You won’t need a passport to experience authentic music, dance, cuisine, and more in one weekend. This festival is FREE with Arboretum admission.
Enjoy music from Jimmy’s Bavarians, a German alpenhorn/lederhosen group. Spanish flamenco-style group Guitarra Azul will perform as will the poka band Danny Mateja & the IPA Tribute Band, among others.
Visitors can watch dancing from Salt Creek Ballet, McNulty Irish Dancers, Thistle & Heather Highland Dancers, Dionysus Greek Dancers, and more!
Listen to European folktales by story teller Chris Fascione and fairy tales and songs from performer Barb Sorensen.
The festival will include an assortment of food vendors as well as the chance to hike the trails and explore the Arboretum’s collections of trees and plants native to central and northern Europe—some of the oldest collections on the Arboretum’s grounds.
