One of the region’s largest international festivals, WorldFest, celebrated its 13th anniversary with four days of food, music, culture, dance and education from around the world. The free festival, held on the Belvedere at Fifth and Main Street, explores and celebrates the diverse cultures of Louisville, Mayor Greg Fischer describes on the city government’s website. There are more than 90 languages spoken in Louisville’s public schools, and 50 percent of the city’s population growth the last 15 years comes from international residents.
