Boulevard of Food

International Festival foodAsk most people what their favorite part of the annual International Festival is, and without hesitation they'll say it's the food. There's no doubt about it, the Boulevard of Food is one of the most popular attractions at the festival year after year.

With food booths lining Converse Street between Barnet Park and the Chapman Cultural Center, offering tastes from around the world, it's easy to see why. Festival-goers can sample foods from Germany, Japan, El Salvador, France, Kenya, Peru, Tanzania, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Laos, Jamaica, and much more. 

Food is purchased with coupons that are sold at “currency exchange” locations throughout the festival area for $1 each.
