Annual cultural festival in Burnsville, Minnesota


Volunteers Needed to Help Plan 2014 International Festival

Events like International Festival of Burnsville don’t plan themselves!

Planning has begun for the 2014 International Festival in July. Burnsville is proud of its diversity, and asks that residents help put together the event that celebrates the community’s many cultures. With ethnic displays, food, and performances of dancers, musicians and other entertainers, there is something for everyone.

There are many ways to get involved in the festival planning. The committee needs new members to work on Entertainment, Publicity, and Cultural Booth Representation.  Meetings are typically once per month or every other month. 

To be a member of the planning group and volunteer your time and energy to this fabulous festival, please contact  Margo Swanson at 612-308-9038 or
