MADISON COUNTY – On Sept. 21, residents can travel ‘around the world’ without a passport.

“iFest is a one-day, family-friendly spectacular, open to the public with no admission or parking charges. iFest is the only such opportunity within a two-hour travel radius,” publicist Jim Zielinski said.

“Visit Poland, Ireland, Gambia, Peru, Australia, Ireland, Kyrgyzstan, Indonesia and many other distant lands. International Society of Huntsville, UAH Library and UAH Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Equity and countless community volunteers present this popular event,” Zielinski said.

Alabama Bicentennial Committee endorses iFest.

A ribbon cutting and “Parade of Nations” at 9 a.m. will open iFest. “Latvia and Sweden are new this year. For 2019, ‘Spotlight Countries’ will be Romania and South Korea,” Zielinski said.
