The International Festival of Burnsville was established in 2006 to celebrate the city’s cultural diversity. In non-COVID years, the Festival takes place at Nicollet Commons Park each summer and features a range of music and dance groups representing cultures around the globe.  In addition to music, guests and their families can purchase food, admire culture displays, and engage in kid-friendly activities.

For Summer 2021, we have moved most of the festival to a virtual experience. We look forward to offering you and your family a variety of art and cultural experiences to enjoy together.

The Festival is made possible, in part, by Minnesota voters through grants from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council via legislative appropriation from the Clean Water, Land, & Legacy Amendment.
