International Festival 2016July 7, 2016 the Burnsville Sun/Thisweek news reports on the upcoming International Festival.

When the International Festival of Burnsville debuted at Nicollet Commons Park in 2Q07, organizers talked about "embracing diversity." "lt was our early focus," said Burnsville resident Margo Swanson, who's been involved in the event since the beginning. "Now it has kind of morphed. Now we're well beyond embracing diversity. Now we're bringing the families together and we're celebrating culture together."

The annual festival returns to Nicollet Commons on Saturday, July 16, from 3-9 p.m. The day of entertainment, food, art and cultural exhibits has become a summer highlight in Burnsville, often drawing 3,000 or more festival goers.
